star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the importance of tackling plastic pollution and addressing the sustainability of the fashion industry, and our Resources and Waste Strategy sets out how we will do this. The Government has not made an assessment of the environmental impact of introducing a 5p charge for plastic clothes hangers, however our reforms set out in the Strategy will help address the issues that they pose. When sold in conjunction with clothing, plastic clothes hangers are classified as packaging items, meaning that they are subject to the current producer responsibility system for packaging waste. This requires obligated businesses to acquire evidence to demonstrate that tonnages equivalent to their individual targets have been recovered and recycled each year. Earlier this year the Government consulted on proposals to reform the current packaging producer responsibility system and intends to bring forward its final proposals for consultation in 2020.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Office for Students (OfS) is responsible for assessing and monitoring the financial sustainability of registered higher education (HE) providers in England. The English HE sector overall remains in reasonable financial health, according to the OfS, in its report published on 4 April 2019. The OfS has currently registered 388 HE providers. This means that it has assessed that each of those providers has met a registration condition of being financially sustainable looking out for a period of five years. The OfS will continually monitor providers’ compliance with this registration condition, as with all registration conditions, in a way that is appropriate to the circumstances of individual providers.</p><p>Ministers and officials in the Department for Education regularly discuss a wide range of issues relating to HE with the OfS. Similarly, Ministers and officials frequently meet representatives of individual HE providers and sector representative bodies.</p><p>Education is a devolved matter. The Department for Education is responsible for HE in England only. The OfS is the regulator for HE in England only.</p>

We strongly encourage all employers to publish action plans, prompting discussions about the drivers of the pay gap in their organisations. To support employers, we have published advice on how to diagnose their gaps and develop an effective action plan, alongside evidence-based guidance on practical actions they can take to close the gap. We actively disseminate this guidance to employers throughout the year to ensure they have the information they need to create an action plan.</p><p> </p><p>This position is kept under review. If we do not think that employers are making enough progress, we will act.</p>

We have also invested tens of millions of pounds in new infrastructure to enhance border security. All freight vehicles entering the UK through the juxtaposed controls are screened for people being smuggled into the UK using a range of techniques. This includes using carbon dioxide detectors and motion sensors as well as sniffer dogs to detect clandestine on-board lorries.</p><p>We will continue to monitor closely displacement of the threat to other ports and routes into the UK and are prepared to shift more resources to UK ports, whilst working proactively with European law enforcement, including partners in France, Belgium and Holland, to target the organised crime networks behind people trafficking and illegal migration.</p> more like this
