answer text <p>The government recognises the importance of ensuring there are sufficient skilled graduates to meet industry demand. We are working with different veterinary sector stakeholders, to look at ways of increasing veterinary school capacity and the number of graduates in all UK vet schools going forward.</p><p>The government also subsidises the costs of teaching high-cost subjects such as veterinary medicine, where tuition fee income does not meet the costs of teaching. This is supported through the teaching grant allocated annually to providers via the Office for Students.</p><p>In 2018/19, the recurrent teaching grant provided by the government totals £1,290 million, of which £681 million is specifically targeted at supporting high-cost subjects, including veterinary science. This is currently around £10,000 per veterinary science student.</p><p> </p><p>English higher education providers are autonomous institutions. Their institutional autonomy, which includes decisions as to what they teach, is protected by the Higher Education and Research Act 2017.</p><p>However, the lifting of student number controls in 2015/16 means that there is no longer an artificial cap on the numbers of students that higher education providers are able to recruit, including for veterinary science courses.</p><p> </p><p>There has been progress in the sector in increasing places for veterinary students. The first cohort of students to graduate with the University of Surrey's new veterinary degree is scheduled for July 2019, thereby bringing more domestically trained vets in to the profession. Alongside this, the new Harper and Keele Veterinary School will be commencing its new 5 year degree course in 2020.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>During the period between 13 August 2018 (from whence a small number of Leeds services were removed from the timetable) until 1 February 2019 (Monday to Friday only), LNER operated the full timetable on the Leeds to London (both directions) route on 65 of the 123 days. This means that on the other 58, there was at least 1 cancellation of either a Leeds to London or London to Leeds service.</p><p> </p><p>This represents an improvement in operating the full timetable on that route from 31% (in the previous 21 May to 10 August 2018 period) to 53%.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally, the overall number of cancellations halved after implementing the timetable with planned cancellations meaning a more robust service offer for passengers. Between May and July 2018 so called TOC-on-Self cancellations (ie those cancellations within LNER’s control versus external factors) across all LNER services were averaging 89 per period, whilst cancellations between August 2018 and February 2019 were reduced to an average of 44 per period. The provision of extra resilience by implementing the pre-planned cancellations is ensuring a more robust and predictable service for passengers.</p>
