All state maintained secondary schools must teach art and design and D&amp;T to pupils aged 5-14. There is also a statutory entitlement for every pupil aged 14-16 to take D&amp;T and an arts subject, if they wish to do so.</p><p>Like maintained schools, academies must provide a broad and balanced curriculum. Ofsted’s new inspection arrangements, which will be introduced in September, place a renewed focus on schools ensuring all pupils receive a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum.</p><p>The arts are an essential part of a broad and balanced education and high-quality arts education should not be the preserve of the elite, but the entitlement of every single child. Between 2016-20, we are spending almost £500 million on a range of arts and cultural education programmes.</p><p>At primary school, data from the Teacher Voice Omnibus 2016 survey revealed that the average amount of time spent teaching art and design and D&amp;T was broadly similar to the amount of time spent teaching history and geography. GCSE art and design remains a popular choice and 2019 Ofqual provisional GCSE data shows the proportion of pupils taking this subject has increased since 2018.</p><p>The department has worked closely with organisations such as the James Dyson Foundation and Royal Academy of Engineering to strengthen the new D&amp;T curriculum and GCSE. The new GCSE will be taken for the first time in summer 2019. To improve the quality of teaching D&amp;T in schools, the department offers D&amp;T graduates bursaries of up to £12,000 to enter the profession.</p><p>Both art and design and D&amp;T GCSEs count towards the progress and attainment 8 secondary accountability measures, which is the headline measure of secondary school performance.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>We remain deeply concerned by the situation in Libya and the conditions in Libyan detention centres. The UK is clear that all parties to the conflict must commit to a ceasefire, ensure unconditional humanitarian access, and return to political talks. All parties to the conflict must do all they can to prevent any further loss of life, including by respecting their obligations under International Humanitarian Law, and engage with the UN and humanitarian community. This is essential to ensure aid can reach those in need and to allow for civilians, including refugees and migrants, to be immediately evacuated to safety.</p><p> </p><p>The UK has announced a contribution of £1 million to the UN Flash Appeal. This includes funding to the World Health Organisation to deliver life-saving medical care, and funding to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs to improve humanitarian access for agencies on the ground. The UN Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) has released $2 million to provide life-saving assistance to civilians caught up in the fighting, including vulnerable migrants and refugees. The UK was the biggest donor to the CERF in 2018, providing £114.3 million.</p><p> </p><p>The Minister of State for the Middle East raised the plight of people in detention centres with the Libyan Deputy Minister last week.</p>

Under the agreement the Government purchased emissions allowances on behalf of British Steel ensuring it met its 2018 ETS obligations. Failure to comply with its ETS obligations would have led to a fine of around £500m, on top of the costs of ETS compliance of around £120m.</p><p>In return, under a deed of forfeiture, the company’s 2019 allowances will be assigned to the Government once issued, and the proceeds from selling these is expected to cover the costs of purchasing allowances for British Steel. The Government’s view is that the 2019 allowances will still be issued to British Steel in insolvency.</p><p>The Government’s assessment is that the Deed of Forfeiture offered value for money to the taxpayer, with benefits exceeding the costs, predicated on the level of confidence around security, even in the event of insolvency.</p><p>This position was supported by the independent Industrial Development Advisory Board which assessed the proposal in their statutory role and agreed with the Government’s value for money assessment.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>On 23 May, the Treasury formally directed the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to launch an independent investigation into the events at London Capital &amp; Finance (LCF), and approved the FCA’s appointment of Dame Elizabeth Gloster to lead it. The investigation will look at the events and circumstances surrounding the failure of LCF and whether, in its supervision of LCF, the FCA discharged its functions in a manner which enabled it to effectively fulfil its statutory objectives. Dame Elizabeth will be able to consider any other matters she deems relevant to the events set out in the Treasury’s direction to the FCA.</p><p> </p><p>Dame Elizabeth is an experienced barrister, leading QC and Judge at the High Court and Court of Appeal. The Treasury is satisfied that she will be able to lead a robust and independent investigation.</p><p> </p><p>The Treasury has stipulated that the investigation should be completed within 12 months, whilst allowing the investigator to report sooner than 12 months if this is feasible. This will ensure that the investigation is as thorough as possible and that the right lessons are learned to better protect those who invest their money in the future.</p>

As a result of the issues raised in and by the Tribunal a formal internal investigation is underway. This is being undertaken by a senior manager outside the prisons line management chain. Once that has concluded the interim Director General of HM Prisons will consider what action, including potentially disciplinary action, may be appropriate.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Strong Customer Authentication Regulatory Technical Standards (“the SCA RTS”), which are intended to reduce fraud and increase payments security, came into force on 14 March 2018 in EU law. The majority of its provisions will apply from 14 September 2019, and will apply in full in the UK.</p><p> </p><p>The EU (Withdrawal) Act (“the Act”) will bring into UK law all directly applicated EU regulations which are operative at exit day, as defined by the Act, or at the end of the proposed Implementation Period if the withdrawal agreement reached between the Government and the EU is ratified. This includes operative Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS). The Act also permits ministers to make amendments which correct deficiencies in these regulations, if that is necessary to ensure they operate effectively in the UK.</p><p>The Financial Regulators’ Powers (Technical Standards etc.) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018, made under the Act, delegated responsibility for fixing deficiencies in the SCA RTS to the FCA. Under the Electronic Money, Payment Services and Payment Systems (Amendment and Transitional Provisions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018, the FCA is also the competent authority for the SCA RTS after EU Exit.</p><p> </p><p>The FCA consulted on its approach to the SCA RTS after the UK has left the EU (see CP18/44, published on 19 December 2018). It proposes to substantially maintain these technical standards in UK law, to support consumer protection and to provide firms with certainty and clarity about the systems they have been building.</p>
