star this property answer text <p>In the Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review, the Government supports the introduction of flexible, shared spectrum models - such as dynamic spectrum access - and the release of additional public sector spectrum as strategic priorities. Government believes that spectrum sharing would enable new players, alongside existing mobile operators, to access and invest in new business models whilst enabling innovative solutions to connectivity challenges, such as in rural areas.</p><p> </p><p>Today, we have the tools and technologies needed to allocate spectrum on a dynamic basis. Government will continue to work with Ofcom and industry to support innovation and investment and deliver improvements in coverage. We believe that the market expansion model will aid these objectives and encourage competition. The Government recently consulted on these ambitions in the Statement of Strategic Priorities. Ofcom, as the national regulatory authority, will have regard to these when carrying out the management of spectrum and other relevant functions.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to creating a labour market that works for everyone. Through the Good Work Plan - the biggest upgrade to workers’ rights in a generation - we set out a number of measures to improve state enforcement of core employment rights. In addition to introducing state enforcement of holiday pay for vulnerable workers, we also committed to expand agency worker protections to cover umbrella companies. In light of this expansion of the State’s role, we will consider the case for a single labour market enforcement body, which would bring together the relevant enforcement functions of the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority, HMRC’s National Minimum Wage team and the Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate. Proposals will be published in due coursefor public consultation.</p> more like this
