star this property answer text <p>We have no plans to introduce new regulations at this stage. Gold, unlike scrap metal such as lead, is sold through many different outlets including antique shops, jewellers, pawnbrokers and shops offering cash for goods. Any new regulation would potentially be both complex and expensive to implement and enforce. <br><br>The crime prevention panel that we have set up in the Home Office is looking at new ways to prevent the theft of gold. This includes a review of an existing voluntary code of practice on the sale of gold that has been developed by police in collaboration with the National Pawnbrokers Association, the British Jewellers’ Association, the National Association of Goldsmiths and others. <br>Shops signing up to this code of practice agree to follow a number of guidelines, including asking for proof of identity when gold is offered for sale and maintaining detailed records of goods purchased. We expect this work to be completed in early 2015.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

For example, pollution from sewage works has gone down significantly; phosphate pollution will fall by a further fifth and ammonia by a further sixth by 2015. Overall, this government has improved over 15,000 kilometres of rivers – equivalent to the length of the Amazon and Nile combined – but we know more needs to be done.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
