star this property answer text <p>The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) recently published its policy framework for the student opportunity allocation: 'Delivering opportunities for students and maximising their success' which can be found at the following link: <a href="http://www.hefce.ac.uk/pubs/year/2015/201514/" target="_blank">http://www.hefce.ac.uk/pubs/year/2015/201514/</a>. This set out its expectation that new initiatives will only be funded where they have robust evaluation plans in place, including the application of suitable research methods and the appropriate use of individual and national level data. HEFCE also plans to develop a framework setting out the outcomes against which the HE sector will be expected to demonstrate the impact and effectiveness of its work. It is envisaged this will include a range of educational, labour market and, where possible, wider societal outcomes.</p><br /> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There have been three meetings of the International Comparisons Working Group, which has been examining the application of EU state aid rules in other EU member states and the issue of dumping of steel into the EU. A review of how other EU countries support their steel sectors showed that the UK was not missing an opportunity to provide assistance within the existing rules. It has also helped strengthen the partnership between industry and government, including on the evidence base on dumping of steel.</p><br /><p>The Competitiveness and Productivity Working Group, which has met twice under the chairmanship of my Noble Friend Lord O’Neill of Gatley, has held discussions with steel industry representatives on the regulatory regime, energy costs and business taxation issues, as well as looking at broader issues around the future competitiveness of the steel industry. My Rt Hon Friend the Prime Minister has already announced on 28th October during Prime Ministers Questions that we are, subject to state aid clearance, bringing forward compensation for the costs of Renewables Obligation for Energy Intensive Industries and have confirmed the steel industry will be able to take advantage of the available flexibilities under the Industrial Emissions Directive.</p><br /><p>The Steel Procurement Working Group, chaired by my Rt Hon Friend the Minister for the Cabinet Office, has met twice, looking at how better to take account of socio-economic considerations in procurement, at achieving better transparency of the pipeline of steel needs in future infrastructure projects, and at steel standards. Following the first meeting, the Government published on 30 October new guidelines for departments to apply on major projects when sourcing and buying steel. The new instructions will help steel suppliers compete on a level playing field with international suppliers for major government projects.</p><br /><p><strong></strong></p>
