unstar this property answer text <p>The Treasury has not made an assessment of the net fiscal impact of increasing the number of Tier 1 Exceptional Talent visas available. In 2018, the number of Exceptional Talent Visas granted was within the previous quota.</p><p> </p><p>The increase in quota ensures that we have sufficient headroom in the Exceptional Talent route to continue to attract highly skilled people from across the globe; and is a demonstration of the Government’s commitment to ensuring that the UK remains a world-leader in the digital technology, science, arts and the creative sectors.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>In May 2018, the Government amended the Parole Board Rules to allow victims and other parties to request summaries of Parole Board decisions for the first time. To date, the Parole Board has produced over 1000 decision summaries. This has helped victims and the wider public have a greater understanding of parole decisions.</p><p> </p><p>Decision summaries have been an important first step in bringing greater openness to the parole system. In September 2018, the Government’s Victims’ Strategy recognised that more must be done to increase the transparency of the parole process and the way we communicate with victims. Since then, in February 2019, the Secretary of State published a Review of the Parole Board Rules which further underlined the Government’s commitment to improve the transparency of the parole process.</p><p> </p><p>In light of this review, the Parole Board have committed to:</p><ul><li>produce Standard Practice guidance to provide clear and public information about how release decisions are reached</li><li>improve other publicly available information about how parole works</li><li>continue to work with broadcast and print media to increase understanding of how parole works, including allowing the media to observe some hearings</li></ul><p> </p><p>These measures will improve public understanding of how the parole system operates, support greater consistency in decision making and provide accountability where standards may not have been met.</p><p> </p><p>In February 2019, the Secretary of State also launched a Tailored Review of the Parole Board. This review will include further reflection on the transparency of the Parole Board, its governance, decision making and the information and data it shares with the public (building on the work of recent reviews). The Tailored Review will publish its findings in the summer of 2019.</p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>The Government is keen that the welfare needs of racehorses are well met, both during their racing lives and afterwards and any racehorse fatality is one too many. We are in regular discussions with the British Horseracing Authority (BHA), who are responsible for safety at racetracks, about how we can look at ways in which we can make horseracing safer and further reduce fatalities at tracks.</p><p> </p><p>The Government considers that whilst the BHA have made improvements to the welfare of racehorses, there is still more work to be done. That is why I will be meeting with the BHA soon, and pressing them for an action plan on improving the safety at starting stalls, and safety relating to other equipment. There are strict rules around the use of whip with stiff penalties for those riders who breach them. The Animal Welfare Act 2006 makes it an offence for anyone to cause unnecessary suffering to an animal and this includes racehorses on racetracks.</p> more like this
