star this property answer text <p>The UK and EU have a long history of jointly tackling global challenges, with strong links between our research and innovation communities. We wish to continue collaborating with European partners and are considering association to Horizon Europe. We have been fully participating in Horizon Europe negotiations, and are pleased with the significant progress and constructive way in which Member States and EU Institutions have worked together.</p><p> </p><p>After the UK leaves the EU, we will build on existing relationships in Brussels and seek to influence Horizon Europe in line with UK priorities. The Horizon Europe programme must be finalised before we can make an informed decision on future participation. We would not be able to seek association until the Programme has been adopted and we have exited the EU.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is committed to backing UK researchers and innovators by supporting measures to enable world-class collaborative research, including support for small businesses. As a responsible government, we are considering alternative options in case the UK does not associate to Horizon Europe, but this does not change our policy on considering association to Horizon Europe.</p>

This is why the Government recently ran the ‘It comes with the job’ advertising campaign encouraging workers to understand their rights and employers to understand their legal obligations. Government has also developed new guidance, available on GOV.UK, to help workers and employers understand holiday pay policy and entitlement. Both the campaign, and the guidance were aimed at atypical workers, which includes workers on zero hours contracts. To aid those at risk of not receiving their holiday entitlement, the Government has also committed to introducing state enforcement of holiday pay for vulnerable workers.</p>

The Regulations place duties on manufacturers, importers and distributors of electrical equipment to ensure that where a safety issue is identified, appropriate action is taken to withdraw, recall or otherwise bring the equipment into conformity.</p><p> </p><p>The Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS) operates an incident management procedure for managing consumer product safety incidents across the UK, to deliver on its wider purpose of protecting consumers and building public confidence in the product safety system. It also makes available information on recalled electrical products through its dedicated product recall website.</p><p> </p><p>OPSS has provided training for Environmental Health officers in Northern Ireland on product safety recalls, PAT testing and intelligence use and has also provided them with access to testing of products that are imported or manufactured in Northern Ireland.</p><p> </p><p>OPSS will continue to work closely with District Councils and other partners to further develop capability and capacity on product safety to ensure consumers in Northern Ireland are protected from unsafe electrical products.</p>
