star this property answer text <p>The Commonwealth War Graves Commission cares for cemeteries and memorials at 23,000 locations around the world. The Commission commemorates the 1,700,000 men and women of the Commonwealth forces who died in the two world wars with dedication and skill and there are no plans to extend its remit. However, as part of our plans to commemorate the First World War centenary, we are working with the Commission to explore the scope for conserving significant burial sites outside their care. We also recently announced funding of up to £300,000, through the Department for Communities and Local Government, for the specific conservation of graves of Victoria Cross holders outside the Commission's responsibility.</p> more like this

The pace of deployment has increased from 10,000 premises a week gaining availability of superfast broadband in early 2014 to 20,000 a week now and this will increase to 40,000 per week by the Summer of 2014.</p><p> </p><p>With respect to impact on SME's, the Broadband Impact Study – Impact Report, an expert report by analysts SQW (with Cambridge Econometrics), revealed the Government's investment in superfast broadband will deliver a major boost to the UK economy; for every £1 the government is investing in broadband, the UK economy will benefit by £20 by 2024. It also demonstrated that the benefits will be shared across the UK, helping the rebalancing of our economy; approximately 89 per cent of the benefits will be in areas outside London and the South East of England with rural areas set to benefit most.</p><p> </p><p>The report focussed on impacts of mass market broadband services – i.e. ‘affordable broadband' for SMEs and households – and estimated that by 2024, net annual GVA impacts attributable to intervention include:</p><p> </p><p>· £0.8 billion from safeguarding local enterprise employment,</p><p>· £5 billion from productivity growth for broadband-using firms,</p><p>· £0.3 billion from improved teleworker productivity, and</p><p>· £0.2 billion from increased labour force participation.</p><p> </p><p>The majority of these benefits will be to SMEs, and over half to rural areas.</p>

In the Spending Review of 2010, funding for the British Library was protected by limiting resource cuts to 15% in real terms over four years, and at the Spending Round of 2013, the 5% reduction in capital and resource budgets was below average. The Chancellor signalled in his 2014 Budget announcement that there would not be any further reductions to departmental spending at this time, so that sponsored bodies will maintain current levels of planned spending in 2014/15 and 2015/16.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The online infringement of copyright provisions within the Digital Economy Act 2010 have not yet been implemented, and so no such assessment has been carried out. The delay is due to a number of factors, including legal challenge and ensuring compliance with Government “Managing Public Money” principles. In the meantime the Government has encouraged the industry to investigate a voluntary copyright alert programme, which should produce similar results in a significantly shorter timescale. I am grateful to the industry for the energy with which they have picked up this challenge. Nevertheless, unless an effective alternative is put in place, Government continues to be committed to implementation of the provisions with the Digital Economy Act.</p> more like this
