star this property answer text <p>I recognise the international importance of the HS1 network in allowing high-speed rail services from London to reach Europe, whilst noting that no international services currently serve Stratford International station.</p><br /><p>Eurostar, in which the government recently sold its 40% stake, accesses the HS1 network on an open access basis and is not subject to the terms of a franchise agreement or a contract let by government. Government has no power to direct or specify that Eurostar stops at Stratford International station. A decision made by Eurostar not to serve Stratford International would be as a result of commercial imperatives and priorities, for example, the potential revenue derived from customers using the station or the increased journey time which a further stop would involve. It would not be appropriate for government to interfere with that decision-making process.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is vital that the police reflect the communities they serve and I am determined to improve Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) representation in all 43 forces in England and Wales.</p><p>A number of police forces are currently recruiting officers. Decisions on when and how to recruit individuals are for the chief officer of a police force. It is important that they use equalities legislation, including positive action provisions, to make better progress in terms of recruitment of under-represented groups.</p><p>This Government's reforms have already made improvements, for example we set up the College of Policing which has embarked on a major programme of work, BME Progression 2018, looking at recruitment, retention and progression of black and minority ethnic officers, including the development of an evidence base of successful approaches used by forces.</p><p>As part of this programme the College recently published Positive Action Practical Advice, which advises forces on the use of lawful positive action to support the recruitment, retention and progression of officers from under-represented groups.</p><p>Also, under this Government innovative schemes such as Direct Entry and Police Now are increasing the number of BME recruits to the police, showing that you can achieve better representation while attracting the best and the brightest into policing.</p><p>Of the nine direct entry superintendents who began their superintendent training four (44%) are women and two (22%) are from an ethnic minority background. This is significantly more representative than the current make up of the superintendent rank which is comprised of 17% women and 4% from an ethnic minority background.</p><p>Police Now, an innovative graduate scheme implemented in the Metropolitan Police, received such a high calibre of applicants that it made provisional offers to 79 individuals, up from an anticipated 50. Of these, 16% per cent are from a BME background as compared to the Metropolitan Police’s current BME officer make up of 11%, and the national police BME proportion of 5.2%.</p><p>The Metropolitan Police also introduced its London residency criteria for recruits in August 2014 since when the proportion of BME applicants has risen to approximately 40%, a percentage which now matches the BME population of London.</p><p> </p>

The further work on air quality is only one element of a wider package of further work.</p><p> </p><p>We are dealing with concerns about noise to get the best outcome for residents, and doing more work on carbon to address concerns on sustainability, particularly during construction. We want to make sure that communities get the best possible mitigation deal.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, we are doing due diligence on the plans for surface access to the airports by talking to both the promoters and the key delivery bodies.</p><p> </p><p>We are also carrying out extra assurance to assess the runways’ potential both locally and nationally so it can deliver more jobs, more growth and more apprenticeships.</p><p> </p><p>On funding and financing, the Airports Commission has provided an extensive examination of the costs, financing, and commercial viability of airport expansion. The Airports Commission and the scheme promoters have made it clear that new runway capacity will be privately delivered and financed.</p><p> </p><p>We anticipate that all this further work will conclude over the summer.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Where a person is convicted of an offence under section 33 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (the ‘fly-tipping’), section 33B (2) of that Act provides that “loss or damage resulting from the offence” in section 130 of the Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000 specifically includes costs incurred or to be incurred by a relevant person in removing the waste deposited or disposed of in or on the land; taking other steps to eliminate or reduce the consequences of the deposit or disposal; or both.</p><p> </p><p>A “relevant person” is defined for these purposes in section 33B (3) as including the occupier of the land and the owner of the land.</p><p> </p><p>A court can order the person convicted of fly-tipping to pay compensation to the occupier or owner of the land in respect of costs incurred or to be incurred in removing the waste and/or associated clean-up costs. Whether a court would in any particular case make such an order will depend on the nature of the case, any other form of punishment to which the offender is to be sentenced, and the financial means of the offender to pay. Once a compensation order is made the courts have a role in enforcing that order to ensure that monies are paid. This is reflected in the sentencing guideline. The application of the guideline is a matter for the court to decide. A copy of this document will be placed in the Library.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is not currently considering providing compensation to landowners in relation to large-scale commercial dumping of waste on private land.</p><p> </p><p>Fly-tipping is unacceptable whether it occurs on public or private land. However, fly-tipping on private land is a difficult issue. Local authorities are not under any legal obligation to clear fly-tipped waste from private property, so this responsibility falls to the landowner. Some authorities may offer a clearance service but they are likely to charge for this. If, following an investigation, a conviction is secured then the court can award compensation which covers the costs of clearance of waste to the landowner.</p> more like this
