star this property answer text We are on track to open the non-household retail market for water and sewerage services in April 2017. All partners in the Open Water programme (the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Ofwat and Market Operator Services Limited), are strongly committed to meeting this date. A clear timetable of the activities, which will need to be completed before the market can open, is published on Ofwat’s website and updated each month. Market Operator Services Limited is working closely with all relevant companies to ensure that they will be ready for market opening in April 2017. Incumbent water companies who want to compete in the new national retail market will need to establish a separate legal entity and apply for a Water and Sewerage Supply Licence, although they are not under any obligation to do so. Ofwat sought views on the appropriate conditions for licensees operating in the new retail market through its consultation on new Water and Sewerage Supply Licences in June 2015. It will be able to impose financial penalties on licensees who do not comply with these conditions.

star this property answer text The Government remains committed to putting in place a well-managed Blue Belt to protect precious marine habitats and species. We are aiming for the third tranche of Marine Conservation Zones to be comprehensive and complete our contribution to the ecologically coherent network of Marine Protected Areas in the North East Atlantic. This network plays an important part in helping stem the decline of marine habitats and species and in aiding their recovery. The Government has also committed to doubling the size of protected ocean around the UK Overseas Territories to four million square kilometres. This commitment included the immediate formal designation of Marine Protected Areas around the Pitcairn Islands and St Helena which will help protect the Territories’ important endemic marine species. more like this

star this property answer text <p>£642 million is the total cumulative value of disallowance penalties for the 2007-2013 Single Payment Scheme, a number of smaller 2007-13 CAP schemes, and pre-2007 predecessor schemes. Most of the disallowance related to early problems with the mapping system prior to 2010, but finally settled some years later, after the process of mediation had concluded.</p><p>Defra negotiates hard to reduce the level of disallowance initially proposed by the EU and is also working to reduce the risk of future disallowance by improving domestic systems and controls, and by arguing for a simplification of the current CAP. This includes pushing for a review of the EU’s system for controls - the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS) - to bring about a more pragmatic and proportionate approach to inspections, checks and penalties.</p><p> </p><p><br></p> more like this
