star this property answer text <p>The UK regulatory regime for shale gas is considered among the most robust and stringent in the world.  In October 2018 we established a Shale Environmental Regulator Group (SERG) to act as a single-entry point for the environmental regulation of the shale gas industry and bring the three regulators (Oil and Gas Authority, the Environment Agency and the Health and Safety Executive) together to act as one coherent entity.</p><p> </p><p>Local communities have met with the regulators at public information events and community liaison groups. During fracking operations at the Preston New Road site in Lancashire the regulators provided newsletters to residents and published information online on ‘Citizen Space’, including inspection reports and results from environmental monitoring. The regulators are visible and responding to community concerns.</p> more like this

The White Paper proposals include a new route for skilled workers which will be open to anyone at RQF level 3 (A-Level and equivalent) and above, irrespective of where they are applying from. This route will not be capped and employers will not be required to carry out a Resident Labour Market Test for higher skilled roles.</p><p><br>The White Paper also includes, as a transitional measure, a route for temporary workers which will be open to anyone from qualifying countries, at any skill level, for up to 12 months. We do not intend to impose a cap on the number of people wishing to use this route.</p><p><br>The White Paper is the start of a new national conversation and we have launched a year-long engagement programme over 2019 to take the views of a range of stakeholders across the UK, including the health and social care sector. Informed by this engagement, we will take final decisions ahead of implementing the new system from January 2021.</p>
