answer text <p>The government has legislated to protect consumers from unexpected charges if there is no Brexit deal. This is to ensure that obligations on mobile operators to apply a financial limit on mobile data usage while abroad is retained in UK law. The limit has been set at £45 per monthly billing period. This means you cannot continue to use mobile data services when roaming unless you actively chose to continue spending. The government has also legislated to continue to ensure that consumers receive alerts when they are at 80% and 100% data usage.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Fundraising Regulator is an independent, non-statutory body that regulates fundraising across the charitable sector in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Fundraising Regulator issued notices to 59 charities that had failed to deal with Fundraising Preference Service suppression requests. These charities have been referred to the Information Commissioner’s Office because of a potential data law breach.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Gambling Act 2005 sets out licensing objectives which underpin the regulation of gambling in Great Britain. They include the protection of vulnerable people from being harmed or exploited by gambling.</p><p>All operators providing gambling facilities to consumers in Great Britain must be licensed by the Gambling Commission and comply with licence conditions. These include requirements to prevent underage gambling, to intervene when a customer shows signs of being at risk of harm and to offer the facility to self-exclude. Operators may also be required to make tools available to help players manage their gambling, such as setting time or spend limits.</p><p>In May last year the Government published its <em>Review of Proposed Changes to Gaming Machines and Responsibility Measures,</em> which set out a package to strengthen protections further. The response can be found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/consultation-on-proposals-for-changes-to-gaming-machines-and-social-responsibility-measures" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/consultation-on-proposals-for-changes-to-gaming-machines-and-social-responsibility-measures</a></p><p> </p><p>As promised in the Review, the Government has passed legislation to reduce the maximum stake limit on B2 machines from £100 to £2. This will come into effect on 1 April 2019. Alongside this we announced action to strengthen safeguards online, including the rollout of GAMSTOP, the online multi-operator self-exclusion scheme. The Gambling Commission has consulted on tightening age and identity verification requirements and will publish a response shortly. It will also launch a call for evidence on gambling on credit and a consultation on customer interaction.</p><p> </p><p>The Review also announced measures to strengthen protections on gambling advertising, including significant new guidance from the Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP) on protecting vulnerable people, tougher sanctions for operators in breach of advertising codes, and a major advertising campaign aimed at raising awareness of risks around gambling.</p>

answer text <p>The department does not hold a record centrally of employees who have had bullying or harassment claims raised against them, and therefore we are unable to determine how many cases of bullying/harassment have been raised specifically against managers.</p><p> </p><p>The total number of formal bullying and harassment complaints made over the past 5 years is listed in the table below. For the reasons stated above, we are unable to isolate complaints made against managers from these totals.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Number of cases</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015</p></td><td><p>0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016</p></td><td><p>0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017</p></td><td><p>less than 5</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018</p></td><td><p>less than 5</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2019 (to date)</p></td><td><p>less than 5</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The department has an ongoing commitment to ensure that staff are treated with dignity and respect and that any concerns raised by staff are listened to and dealt with appropriately. Individuals who feel that they are being harassed or bullied can contact HR for support, or seek informal advice from representatives of the department’s Bullying, Harassment and Discrimination Advisers Group which was launched at the end of last year.</p>

answer text <p>We have a number of priorities for the digital economy in the next five years, in line with both our Digital Strategy and Industrial Strategy. Firstly, we will ensure that the UK remains the best place to start and grow a digital business. We will do this by fostering a supportive business environment, encouraging support to scale-ups, and by means of access to talent. Secondly, we want to ensure that the UK is well positioned to develop and adopt emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) to drive productivity. This will be achieved by means of the AI sector deal, funding for research posts, and by meeting our target of public and private sector investment in R&amp;D to reach 2.4% of GDP by 2027. Thirdly, we will ensure that the benefits and opportunities of technology, including digital connectivity, are felt by all and are spread across the UK. A key priority is to achieve Government plans to have 15 million premises connected to full fibre (so-called 'outside-in') by 2025, and nationwide coverage by 2033. We will continue to deliver the Digital Skills Partnership to improve digital capability across the whole skills spectrum. Importantly, we will continue to emphasise the importance of diversity within the tech sector, as this is an area I feel strongly about.</p><p> </p><p>The Online Harms White Paper sets out the Government’s plans for world leading laws to make the UK the safest place in the world to be online. These will make companies more responsible for their users’ safety online, especially children and other vulnerable groups. A new statutory duty of care is being introduced, to make companies take responsibility for the safety of their users and to tackle harm caused by content or activity on their services. Compliance with this duty of care will be overseen and enforced by an independent regulator. The establishment of the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation (CDEI), to investigate and advise on how we maximise the benefits of data-enabled technologies, including AI, is also an important step forward.</p>

In the event of no deal, the government has published a technical notice on mobile roaming. This is available here: www.gov.uk/government/publications/mobile-roaming-if-theres-no-brexit-deal/mobile-roaming-if-theres-no-brexit-deal. Some mobile operators (3, EE, O2 and Vodafone - which cover over 85% of mobile subscribers) have already said they have no current plans to change their approach to mobile roaming after the UK leaves the EU.</p> more like this
