The scheme is managed by English Heritage and follows guidance set out by them.</p><p> </p><p>However, there are many other plaque schemes throughout the country in various cities and towns. More than seventy civic societies have worked together to standardise the schemes and each of these has a set of guidance for assessment.

answer text <p>Physical education and school sport is vital in promoting mental wellbeing amongst children and young people. The recent publication of data from the Active Lives: Children and Young People survey confirms that active children are happier: the most active children report a mean happiness score of 7.5 (out of 10), compared to 6.8 for those who are less active. Benefits include building confidence, managing anxiety and depression, and increasing self-esteem, cognitive skills and improving learning and attainment.</p><p> </p><p>In December last year the Department of Health and Social Care and Department for Education published Transforming children and young people’s mental health provision: a green paper, which highlighted how important physical activity is for good mental health and wellbeing. Furthermore, the cross-government sport strategy, Sporting Future, sets mental wellbeing as one of its five key outcomes.</p> more like this

answer text <p>We are clear that spectrum should be used efficiently and effectively, given its importance to the economy. In the Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review, the Government stated its view that the development of a set of innovative 5G services and new investment models may require more flexible approaches to spectrum licensing. We have read the report with interest. Ofcom, as the national regulatory authority, is responsible for managing spectrum and ensuring that radio spectrum is used in the most effective way.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Advertising in the UK is regulated by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), the industry’s independent regulator, which enforces the Advertising Codes through a system of self-regulation and co-regulation with Ofcom. The Codes incorporate all relevant legislation and sets standards for accuracy and honesty to which advertisers must adhere, including specific conditions on social responsibility.</p><p> </p><p>With regard to payday loans, guidance relating to the advertising of high-cost short-term credit products is available to advertisers, to ensure that their advertising is compliant with the Advertising Codes, by being socially responsible and not trivialising the seriousness of taking out a loan. At the same time, the Financial Conduct Authority, responsible for regulation of the consumer credit market including payday lenders since 1 April 2014, has introduced a tough set of detailed rules regarding firms’ promotions and advertisements, which operate alongside the Advertising Codes. The Government does not hold data centrally on the effect of advertising on take-up of payday loans.</p><p> </p><p>With regard to gambling machines, the Advertising Codes contain provisions to ensure gambling advertising does not target or appeal particularly to children or young people, or exploit vulnerable people. Gambling companies who advertise in the UK must comply with these rules. In practice, most advertising of gambling products does not involve gaming machines. The Gambling Commission’s Gambling Participation 2017 report showed that 4% of respondents had played on fruit or slot machines in the past four weeks and 1% on machines in bookmakers.</p><p> </p>
