answer text <p>In the Civil Service, a ‘secondment’ is a transfer to an external organisation, whereas the movement of staff to another Government department is usually referred to as a loan. We do not hold information centrally on the host departments of all secondees/loans from our department. However, we do hold a record of some employees on loan for whom we had to retrieve salary costs over the last 3 years:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Department for Exiting the European Union</p></td><td><p>Department for International Trade</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017</p></td><td><p>2</p></td><td><p>0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>2</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2019 (to present)</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>3</p></td></tr></tbody></table> more like this

answer text <p>The Government welcomes cooperation between Scottish museums and museums across the UK. While culture is a devolved matter, and sponsored museums are arms-length bodies which are operationally independent, the Government provides significant support to museums, including grant-in-aid funding, exhibitions tax relief, and the VAT refund scheme.</p><p> </p><p>In line with a recommendation from the 2017 Mendoza Review of museums, DCMS and the National Museum Directors' Council worked together to devise a Museums’ Partnership Framework, which was published in October 2018. National Museums Scotland are fully involved in this project. DCMS is currently analysing the responses to a survey on the amount of collaboration that currently occurs, and will publish a report later this year.</p><p> </p><p>Examples of recent cooperation involving Scottish museums include V&amp;A Dundee, recently nominated for the Art Fund Museum of the Year award, which is a spectacular partnership showcasing hundreds of V&amp;A objects highlighting Scotland's rich design heritage; joint acquisitions and exhibitions such as the Artist Rooms collaboration between Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland; loans such as those from Scottsh museums and organisations to enable the Charles Rennie Mackintosh exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool; and the Natural History Museum’s Dippy the dinosaur which is touring the UK and was recently exhibited in Glasgow.</p>

answer text <p>All providers of age verification (AV) services must comply with data protection laws. In addition, ahead of the introduction of mandatory age verification on online pornography sites, the regulator, the British Board for Film Classifcation, has created a voluntary certification scheme, the Age-verification Certificate (AVC), which will assess the data security standards of AV providers. Age verification solutions which offer these robust data protection conditions will be certified following an independent assessment and will carry the BBFC's new green 'AV' symbol. Details will also be published on the BBFC’s age-verification website, ageverificationregulator.com.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The government, along with major event partners, is committed to embedding sustainability as a key pillar of the planning and delivery of major sporting events. We also welcome the innovation that the sector is driving such as the degradable seaweed pouches used at this year’s London Marathon instead of plastic water bottles.</p><p> </p><p>UK Sport is working alongside several events, providing support as they look into environmentally friendly delivery options. The upcoming Netball World Cup is currently undergoing an environmental review across all workstreams, with findings not only being used to make changes to the event, but also will be fed back into the newly formed sector working group, which alongside staff from UK Sport, consists of athletes, venues and NGB representatives.</p><p> </p><p>UK Sport is also conducting work to place a range of ethical policies at the heart of all events delivered with government support, with environmental policies and considerations sitting as a core element of that work.</p>
