If an EAPC meets those regulatory requirements it is treated the same as a pedal cycle.</p><p> </p><p>In the UK, electric scooters are treated like any other motor vehicle under the Road Traffic Act. This means they are subject to laws requiring them to conform to technical standards and be used safely. This includes requirements for users to have insurance, driving licences, number plates, and helmets. At present, it is difficult for electric scooters to meet these requirements.</p><p> </p><p>Therefore, it is illegal to use an electric scooter on public roads and pavements. They are legal for use on private land with the landowners’ permission.</p><p> </p><p>The Future of Mobility regulatory review will address the challenges of ensuring our transport infrastructure and regulation are fit for the future. This is a broad programme of work, and we expect to publish an initial consultation in autumn this year.</p>

star this property answer text <p>A response is provided to both 261785 and 261784 jointly, as the questions overlap. Since 1 January 2017, HS2 Ltd has entered into 47 Settlement Agreements with employees who no longer work for HS2 Ltd as at today’s date. Specifically, 26 of the 47 were employees who had themselves applied to be made redundant as part of a voluntary redundancy scheme that HS2 Limited ran in 2016. Of the remainder, 3 were with employees who were being made redundant as part of 2 discrete organisational changes. Of the 47, 10 Settlement Agreements have been entered into with staff who were members of HS2’s senior leadership team or higher (7 of the 10 were part of the voluntary redundancy programme mentioned above).</p><p> </p><p>The Settlement Agreement contains terms relating to the cessation of the employment relationship between HS2 Ltd and the employee (e.g. termination date, payment owed for annual leave not taken, any other payments owed, etc). There are mutual confidentiality obligations in each Settlement Agreement but these do not apply where information is required to be disclosed by law OR where a protected disclosure is made by the employee under whistleblowing legislation. Of the 47 Settlement Agreements referred to above, no employee has raised any such protected disclosure (in relation to HS2 Ltd’s financial statements or otherwise). HS2 Ltd has not entered into any Non-Disclosure Agreements with any HS2 employee.</p><p> </p><p>Before any Settlement Agreement is signed by HS2 Ltd and the employee, a certificate from an independent legal adviser must be provided, evidencing that legal advice has been given to the employee as to the effect of the terms of the Agreement. This process can lead to requests for changes to the template Agreement, which HS2 Ltd accepts where feasible.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government are investing nearly £1.5bn‎ between April 2015 and March 2021 to support the transition to ultra-low emission vehicles. Through this funding, commercial organisations are able to take advantage of various grants to help buy plug-in cars, vans, lorries, buses, taxis and motorcycles, alongside schemes to support charge point infrastructure at homes, workplaces and on residential streets.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Government leadership is vital. At the 2017 Autumn Budget, the Government made a commitment that 25% of central government cars will be ultra-low emission by 2022, followed by a further commitment in last year’s Road to Zero strategy that 100% will be ultra-low emission by 2030. In December 2017, the Government updated the Government Buying Standards for transport, including this new commitment. The Government Car Service, managed by the Department for Transport, is on track to meet the targets, with electric vehicles making up 23% of the entire fleet today. The Transport Secretary has written to every government department to reinforce the 2022 pledge. This provided detailed guidance on how each department can drive the transition in their own fleet and asked them to publish a yearly progress report. We expect these steps will encourage both public and private fleets across the country to adopt ambitious targets.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
