star this property answer text <p>In April 2017, the Government implemented reforms to the Horserace Betting Levy which made it a requirement for offshore operators to pay the Levy for the first time.</p><p> </p><p>The Horserace Betting Levy Board, which collects the Levy, estimates that the reformed Levy will generate c.£85m in 2017/18. This would represent an increase of c.£20m compared to receipts from bookmakers in 2016/17 under the old system. The actual Levy yield for 2017/18 will only be known after the end of the financial year. Increased receipts from the Levy have already allowed an additional £9.7m of investment in grassroots prize money, contributing to record prize money of £160m in 2018.</p><p> </p><p>The Levy is collected from bookmakers and distributed in line with the statutory purposes in support of horseracing, and so has no direct effect on the public purse.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department has been clear that for smokers, quitting smoking completely is the best way to improve health. E-cigarettes are not risk free. However evidence continues to suggest that e-cigarettes are significantly less harmful to health than cigarettes and can aid in helping smokers to quit.</p><p> </p><p>Given that e-cigarettes are a relatively new product, there is no long term data available regarding the impact on mortality rates of smokers who opt to move to vaping as an alternative.</p><p> </p><p>The Department will continue to work with Public Health England (PHE) to monitor the evidence base around e-cigarettes. In the Tobacco Control Plan, published in July 2017, PHE committed to update their evidence report on e-cigarettes and other novel nicotine delivery systems annually until the end of the Parliament in 2022.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Health services in public prisons in England, including mental health treatment, are commissioned and reviewed by NHS England. In Wales, health is devolved to the Welsh Government. However, as signatories to the National Partnership Agreement for Prison Healthcare 2018-2021, the Department works closely with health partners to support the delivery of healthcare by ensuring prisoners are able to access these services.</p><p> </p><p>That is why we are investing in our workforce. We have met our target to recruit an additional 2,500 prison officers several months ahead of schedule, helping to ensure that prisoners can be supported to attend scheduled healthcare appointments and receive weekly, one-to-one support from a named prison officer. These officers will coach, signpost and encourage individuals in order that they feel settled and safe and part of this may include signposting individuals to mental health treatment in prison.</p><p> </p><p>Beyond staff support, HMPPS invests in various support services for prisoners which can help promote mental health treatment. For example, HMPPS recently refreshed its partnership with the Samaritans to continue funding the Listeners scheme, which trains selected prisoners to provide emotional support to peers.</p><p> </p><p>The Department recognises the impact that the prison environment can have on prisoner health and wellbeing, particularly for prisoners with a mental health diagnosis. This is why we are focussing on getting the basics right through our prison estate transformation programme, delivering decent prisons that improve opportunities for rehabilitation and create safe and secure environments for staff and offenders.</p>
