star this property answer text <p>Artificial intelligence and automation present enormous opportunities for our economy. Some studies suggest that artificial intelligence could add 10% to the UK GDP by 2030. Other studies highlight the benefits that artificial intelligence and automation could bring to specific sectors.</p><p> </p><p>For example, the independent “Made Smarter” review, published in October 2017, estimated that digital technologies, such as robotics, artificial intelligence, and additive manufacturing, could add £455bn to the UK manufacturing economy over the next decade.</p><p> </p><p>For that reason, under our modern Industrial Strategy, we have taken the following steps to support automation where and when it is appropriate and is for the betterment of society:</p><p> </p><ul><li>£558m of the £1.7bn Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund is related to automation;</li><li>Investment across UKRI partners for robotics, autonomous systems and AI for physical systems since 2014 totals £366m and has attracted a further £153m leverage from private sector or other public bodies;<br></li><li>The AI Sector Deal, published in April 2018, is worth up to£950m and is already delivering pioneering skills and data initiatives to create the jobs and markets of tomorrow; <br></li><li>Government is backing Made Smarter as our key industrial digitalisation programme, including through up to £121m investment into the Made Smarter digital manufacturing challenge to increase manufacturing productivity by up to 30%;</li><ul><li>In addition, Government is investing £20m into the Made Smarter North West pilot for adoption of digital technology, which includes robotics and automation;</li><li>Growth Hubs provide an important one stop shop for businesses seeking to improve their productivity. The £20m Made Smarter North-West Pilots will engage 3,000 SME manufacturers across the north west to improve their productivity, administered through Growth Hubs; and <br></li></ul><li>The UK’s Catapult network helps bridge the gap between businesses and the expertise of the UK’s world-class research in automation. In August 2018, Government committed a further £780m over the next 5 years, which will be match funded with over £1.5bn in industry R&amp;D.</li></ul><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>A robust law enforcement response is a fundamental part of the government's drug strategy and we are taking coordinated action to tackle illegal drugs alongside associated criminal activity. Law enforcement agencies continue to work with internet service providers to shut down UK-based websites found to be committing offences such as selling drugs controlled under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.</p><p> </p><p>The government has been clear that more needs to be done to tackle online harms, including sale of illegal goods. That is why the Government published the Online Harms White Paper, which sets out our plans for world-leading legislation to make the UK the safest place in the world to be online and hold companies to account for tackling a wide range of online harms.</p><p> </p><p>In February this year, the government also announced its intention to review how online advertising is regulated in the UK, looking at how well the current regime is equipped to tackle the challenges posed by technological developments seen in online advertising.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Operators offering gambling services to people in Great Britain must have a licence from the Gambling Commission and have procedures in place to prevent underage gambling. The Gambling Commission has a range of powers to act in the case of failure, including the power to suspend or revoke a licence, impose financial penalties or prosecute criminal offences.</p><p> </p><p>Although it is legal for children to engage in some forms of gambling – for example, betting between friends or on crane grab machines in Family Entertainment Centres – the law is clear that children are not allowed to gamble online or in pubs, betting offices and bingo halls. In May the Gambling Commission introduced new rules that require online gambling businesses to verify the age of customers before they can deposit money, gamble, or access play-for-free versions of gambling games. The Gambling Commission is also working with local authorities and the hospitality sector to improve the enforcement of legal age requirements on the use of gaming machines in pubs.</p>

There is no place anywhere for racism in sport and we want it stamped out at every level of competition.</p><p> </p><p>The football authorities have set out robust plans to combat racism in football. This includes a consistent approach to stronger education measures, improved reporting systems and better training and support for referees and stewards - such as through improved CCTV for recognition of offenders, and expanding the use of body cameras worn by stewards.</p><p> </p><p>The FA have announced an increase of the minimum sanction for discriminatory behaviour to a ten-match ban. It is vital the football authorities continue to prioritise tackling this despicable abuse and we expect them to consult with both players and supporters’ groups as they progress their plans.</p><p> </p><p>We will be monitoring how the football authorities implement their plans through the season.</p><p>We welcome the Premier League’s continuing commitment to eradicate racism from the game, with the promotion of their No Room For Racism campaign over two match weeks, that urges supporters to report discrimination.</p><p> </p><p>After the appalling incidents during the recent Bulgaria versus England game, the Government wrote to the England team supporting and commending their dignity on the pitch, and to UEFA urging that swift action be taken to investigate the incidents and punish those involved.</p><p> </p>
