unstar this property answer text <p>Nuclear power is a proven technology with modern reactors capable of reliably producing low-carbon electricity. Any new activity in the UK involving ionising radiation must first go through a process of regulatory Justification. This process requires that the overall societal benefits associated with the activity outweigh any potential health detriments. For any application involving a nuclear power station, the reliability of the proposed design and implications for energy security are carefully considered.</p><p> </p><p>My rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State in December 2014 decided that the UK ABWR – the technology proposed by Horizon Nuclear Power for deployment at Wylfa Newydd – was Justified for use in the UK. This decision followed a robust assessment of the application, and periods of consultation on both the application and proposed decision. The full decision is available at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-justification-of-practices-involving-ionising-radiation-regulations-2004" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-justification-of-practices-involving-ionising-radiation-regulations-2004</a>, with Chapter 5 specifically addressing the topics of energy security and reliability. Further, in December 2017 the independent UK nuclear regulators granted design acceptance for the UK ABWR technology.</p>

As the PM set out in her Mansion House speech, our aim is to ensure that products only need to undergo one series of approvals, in one country, to show that they meet the required regulatory standards.</p><p> </p><p>The Government will continue to work closely with a wide range of businesses to ensure their views are represented as we progress our work on future options regarding CE marking.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Certain debts, mostly relating to employees’ remuneration or pension scheme entitlements, are paid before other categories of creditor when a company enters liquidation or administration or an individual becomes bankrupt.</p><p> </p><p>Giving small businesses a similar preferential status would reduce the level of returns for other groups of creditors affected by an insolvency, potentially including a reduction in the returns received by existing preferential creditors such as employees. The Government therefore does not intend to change the status of debts owed to small businesses in insolvencies.</p><p> </p><p>In the recently-published Insolvency and Corporate Governance consultation, Government has proposed removing or increasing the current £600,000 cap on the proportion of funds realised from assets subject to floating charge security in a liquidation, administration or administrative receivership that can be ring-fenced and paid to unsecured creditors (known as the “prescribed part”). Doing so would increase returns to unsecured creditors, including small businesses, without changing their status.</p>
