answer text <p>To date, no guarantees under the UK Guarantees Scheme have been issued to road projects in Northern Ireland. This information, alongside details of the UK Guarantees scheme, is publicly available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/uk-guarantees-scheme" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/uk-guarantees-scheme</a>. The UK Guarantees Scheme was established in 2012, with a capacity of up to £40 billion, to support private investment in UK infrastructure projects. As the scheme is demand-led, it only operates where needed and guarantees are not allocated by region. So far, the UK Guarantees Scheme has issued £1.8 billion of guarantees, supporting over £4 billion worth of investment.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government remains committed to ensuring that housing association tenants have the opportunity to own their homes at an equivalent discount to that offered to local authority tenants under the statutory Right to Buy. The Voluntary Right to Buy pilot currently underway in the Midlands is a clear demonstration of that commitment and is giving thousands of housing association tenants in the East and West Midlands the opportunity to apply to purchase their homes at Right to Buy level discounts. The pilot will be independently evaluated after completion and future policy decisions will be taken in light of that evaluation.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The information requested is shown in the table below, compiled via individual responses from establishments.</p><p> </p><p>It is worth noting that data between establishments is not directly comparable. Safeguarding referrals from the youth secure estate to Local Authorities are handled by secure estate establishment staff, as are the maintenance of supporting records. Data provided in this response is therefore the amalgamation of bespoke local records, and is not based with a single methodology. Furthermore, different local authorities have varying protocols in place. For example, in some potential referrals can be ‘triaged’ or reviewed by an on-site social worker before a formal referral is made; in other cases there may be no such arrangement in place and all cases are formally referred to the local authority. This variation in local arrangements, as well as differences in average population and throughout, most likely explains the disparity in volumes.</p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="2"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="2"><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="3"><p> </p></td><td colspan="2"><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="17"><p>2018 (calendar year) -
