star this property answer text <p>As outlined in the Governments Clean Growth Strategy we are investing around £177 million to further reduce the cost of renewables, including innovation in renewables electricity sources, offshore wind turbine blade technology and foundations. In addition, we have made available £557 million to support further deployment of renewable technologies through our Contract for Difference scheme.</p><p> </p><p>The Political Declaration on energy cooperation between the North Seas Countries – focussed on regional coordination in the development of hybrid projects linking offshore windfarms with interconnectors - is a voluntary, intergovernmental initiative outside formal EU structures. Therefore, the UK’s participation is not affected by EU exit. North Seas cooperation is an area with the potential to benefit both UK consumers and business, by facilitating renewable energy and contributing to decarbonisation and security of supply. The UK has brought experience, expertise and leadership to this initiative, and there is no reason that EU exit should change this.</p>

This includes acting on the recommendations of the Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT) of the Council of Europe concerning prisoner association, isolation and access. When raising these issues with the Turkish authorities, we have encouraged them to implement the recommendations made by the CPT following their 2016 visit to the prison.

star this property answer text <p>For all pesticides, the Government carries out a thorough assessment of the scientific evidence, drawing on advice from experts in the Health and Safety Executive and the UK Expert Committee on Pesticides. The current evidence shows that glyphosate pesticides do not carry unacceptable risks to pollinators and can therefore be authorised. Ministers have acted where the evidence shows an unacceptable impact on bees – for example, with respect to neonicotinoids.</p><p> </p><p>Any highly effective means of removing flowering weeds can reduce the food and shelter available to pollinators. We are taking action to provide wildflower-rich habitat through the National Pollinator Strategy, including supporting partnerships of landowners and conservationists on large-scale habitat management projects. In 2015, we introduced new and simple agri-environment ‘packages’ to make it easier for farmers to put flowers back into fields. We are also raising awareness to help everyone support pollinators through action in their gardens and public spaces, through the ‘Bees’ Needs’ campaign.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan puts Integrated Pest Management (IPM) at the heart of its approach. This means developing and implementing policies that encourage and support sustainable crop protection with the use of pesticides and their impact kept to a minimum.</p>

star this property answer text <p>For the purpose of this response, I assume that the question is referring to the ambition for homes to reach Band C by 2035, rather than 2015. Good progress has already been made improving the energy performance of our housing stock, with 30% of homes in England at Band C or above, with a further 51% already at Band D, according to the 2017 English Housing Survey. This is up from 7% and 40% respectively in 2007.</p><p>Since the publication of the Clean Growth Strategy we have:</p><ul><li>Reformed the Energy Company Obligation to focus on those households in or at risk of fuel poverty</li><li>Issued a call for evidence on building a market for energy efficiency, on which we will set out more detail in the forthcoming Green Finance Strategy and Energy White Paper</li><li>Introduced regulations on 1st April 2018 which require landlords to bring their properties to EPC Band E or above, and amended these further to require a contribution of up to £3,500 from landlords towards the cost of improvements from 1<sup>st</sup> April 2019.</li><li>Launched supply chain pilots in six local areas focusing on building capacity and reducing costs</li><li>Launched a new digital service, Simple Energy Advice, to provide impartial and tailored advice to homeowners and tenants.</li><li>Worked with industry to launch a new quality mark for home energy improvements, implementing the recommendations of the independent Each Home Counts review</li><li>Established a £10 million innovation project to reduce the cost of whole house retrofit.</li></ul>
