The UK Government’s approach to tackling modern slavery in Pakistan is to reduce the permissive environment through community-based activities and to strengthen legislative and policy frameworks for more effective protection of those affected. Our programmes aim to target the most marginalised groups of people who we know are vulnerable to modern slavery. This can include religious minorities, such as Christian and Hindu women.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>UK expenditure on energy including imports was approximately £150bn (including taxes) or £113bn (excluding taxes, duties and levies) in 2017[1]. As a direct share, this is 5-7% of GDP depending on the inclusion of taxes, duties and levies. The Government is working to continue to improve energy efficiency across the economy in order to deliver affordable, clean and secure energy – the amount of energy used per unit of GDP has already fallen by 49% since 1990, and we are independently assessed as leading the G20 in cutting emissions while growing the economy since 2000. Our ambitious plans and policies to mitigate against the threat of climate change are set out in the Clean Growth Strategy.</p><p> </p><p>The Government publishes projections of the future volume of energy use based on current and planned policies under a range of sensitivities from now to 2035. The most recent projections can be found on Gov.uk.</p><p>[1] Table 1.4 Digest of UK Energy Statistics (copy attached)</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The number and percentage of students taking design and technology (D&amp;T) and art and design qualifications is set out in the attached tables.</p><p>The government believes that both art and design and D&amp;T are important subjects. All state maintained secondary schools must teach art and design and D&amp;T to pupils aged 5-14. There is also a statutory entitlement for every pupil aged 14-16 to take D&amp;T and an arts subject, if they wish to do so.</p><p>Like maintained schools, academies must provide a broad and balanced curriculum. Ofsted’s new inspection arrangements, which will be introduced in September, place a renewed focus on schools ensuring all pupils receive a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum.</p><p>The arts are an essential part of a broad and balanced education and high-quality arts education should not be the preserve of the elite, but the entitlement of every single child. Between 2016-20, we are spending almost £500 million on a range of arts and cultural education programmes.</p><p>At primary school, data from the Teacher Voice Omnibus 2016 survey revealed that the average amount of time spent teaching art and design and D&amp;T was broadly similar to the amount of time spent teaching history and geography. GCSE art and design remains a popular choice and 2019 Ofqual provisional GCSE data shows the proportion of pupils taking this subject has increased since 2018.</p><p>The department has worked closely with organisations such as the James Dyson Foundation and Royal Academy of Engineering to strengthen the new D&amp;T curriculum and GCSE. The new GCSE will be taken for the first time in summer 2019. To improve the quality of teaching D&amp;T in schools, the department offers D&amp;T graduates bursaries of up to £12,000 to enter the profession.</p><p>Both art and design and D&amp;T GCSEs count towards the progress and attainment 8 secondary accountability measures, which is the headline measure of secondary school performance.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
