We also announced we would publish a call for evidence in 2019 on introducing a new Business Energy Efficiency Scheme, focused on smaller businesses.</p><p> </p><p>We have introduced a more streamlined energy and carbon reporting framework to help businesses to reduce their carbon emissions and associated energy costs, which will come into force on 1 April this year. Under the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), all large businesses are required to audit the energy used by their buildings, industrial processes and transport to identify cost-effective energy saving measures. We are undertaking a comprehensive assessment of the impact and effectiveness of ESOS and will consider future reforms when the current phase ends in December 2019.</p><p> </p><p>The Climate Change Agreements Scheme incentivises a wide range of industrial sectors to reduce energy use and carbon dioxide emissions in return for a significant discount on the Climate Change Levy. And we have recently launched a new £18 million Industrial Heat Recovery Support Programme that supports the recovery and re-use of waste heat from industrial processes, and committed £8.8 million to promote innovative approaches to energy management using smart meters.</p><p> </p><p>We are taking steps to build capacity and capability in the energy services market including through a £5.6 million competition to encourage innovation in aggregating and scaling up smaller energy saving projects across commercial and industrial buildings.</p><p> </p><p>We are also working to ensure that those who lease premises to businesses continue to refurbish and improve the performance of their buildings. This included bringing new regulations into force in April last year which set a minimum energy efficiency standard for non-domestic rented buildings. On current plans, we will consult on proposals to go further in 2019. In parallel, we are clear that all new commercial and industrial buildings should be more energy efficient and are planning to review Part L of the Building Regulations in 2019.</p>

star this property answer text <p>On 28 February we published further proposals on transparency and scrutiny of FTAs. During negotiations for future free trade agreements we will publish and lay before Parliament a Round Report following each substantive round of negotiations. This Round Report will also be published online in an accessible format. We will also publish an Annual Trade Report covering progress across the full programme of negotiations. We announced our intention to work closely with a parliamentary committee to put in place measures to ensure effective parliamentary scrutiny throughout the process.</p><p> </p><p>Alongside our regular engagement with stakeholders, we have set up the Strategic Trade Advisory Group, which was recently announced. Another formal engagement mechanism we are setting up is Expert Trade Advisory Groups. Both of these mechanisms are designed to seek expert insight on strategic trade policy issues, including future trade agreements. These groups will represent a variety of interests, including representatives of trade unions and NGOs.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Academy trusts are free to set their own salaries for all teaching, support and senior management roles. However, we expect these to be justifiable and to reflect accurately the role. Trusts are not obliged to follow the statutory system set out in the independent School Teachers’ Review Body; although trusts can choose to follow the terms of the school teachers' pay and conditions document in relation to teachers and school leaders and local government employee designation for non-teaching staff.</p><p>The government is clear about expectations on pay for all schools, and not just academy trusts. Where trusts are paying high salaries, the government will publicly challenge trusts and boards to justify themselves. We have been doing so for more than a year; and will continue to do so throughout 2019. The latest published data confirms that only 4% of trusts pay one or more salary over £150,000 and the mean average salary for an academy secondary headteacher is £92,400 and £88,800 for a maintained secondary headteacher. In addition, a recent survey of 1000 academies[1] found that the salary for executive leaders declined in 5 of the 6 categories based on pupil numbers in the trust.</p><p> </p><p>[1] <a href="https://www.jamescowperkreston.co.uk/benchmark-report/" target="_blank">https://www.jamescowperkreston.co.uk/benchmark-report/</a>.</p>
