answer text <p>As set out on the 26 June at the Justice Select Committee and in the 2017 manifesto, we remain committed to building up to 10,000 modern and decent prison places to replace old, expensive and unsuitable accommodation. We will deliver this through a combination of both new prisons and the reconfiguration of existing establishments, to enable governors to achieve better outcomes.</p><p> </p><p>While our ambition remains the same, the way that we will deliver this programme has changed meaning that a direct comparison to the £1.3 billion figure is not appropriate. As the Chancellor set out in the budget on 30 October, we now intend to build the first two prisons through public capital at Wellingborough, which is due to open in 2021 and Glen Parva, which we expect to open in 2022 and we continue to explore funding options for the remaining prison places. We are planning to launch a competition later this year to establish a framework from which the operators of the new prisons will be chosen.</p>

answer text <p>Home Office and Treasury Ministers have regular discussions covering a number of issues including changes to pension schemes. In his Budget speech, the Chancellor committed to providing funding to support the po-lice with additional pensions costs.</p><p>On 13 December we announced our proposed police funding settlement for 2019/20 which provides up to £970 million of additional investment in the policing system. This includes £153 million of additional pensions funding, £161 million in increased general grants and up to £509 million of additional funding from council tax precept, if Police and Crime Commissioners use the full flexibility provided. This provides enough funding for the police to meet their increased costs, while continuing to recruit and fill capability gaps like the shortage of investigators.</p> more like this

RCVS has announced its agreement to a proposal from Defra for the creation of a new type of a supporting officer role in aid of the export certification work. This would potentially reduce the additional demands on vets.</p><p> </p><p>Defra continues to work with other Government Departments and veterinary stakeholders on further initiatives to ensure sufficient veterinary capacity.</p> more like this
