Official statistics, from NHS Digital, demonstrate that there is a downwards trend in hospital admissions in England, arising from the discharge of fireworks, with 114 such admissions in 2014/15. The Government will continue to focus on reducing accidents and nuisance by encouraging industry, retailers and others to promote responsible use through guidance and public education.</p><p> </p><p>The Government accepts that fireworks can have a detrimental effect on some animals. However, we consider that if users follow guidance on the correct and sensible use of fireworks, and owners of animals take appropriate precautions, these can help to avoid or reduce any detrimental effects.</p> more like this

This in turn will help to drive investment and support jobs. The Oil and Gas Authority is working hard with industry to facilitate greater collaboration across the UKCS, increase efficiencies, and promote the industry in the UK and abroad.</p><p>In the last two Budgets, the Government has provided a £2.3bn package of support to ensure the UK has one of the most competitive oil and gas tax regimes in the world, protecting jobs and investment. As part of this, we have contributed £40 million to fund two new seismic campaigns to help encourage exploration activity. In addition, the Oil and Gas Authority recently published a new supply chain strategy and delivery plan to maximise the economic potential of the supply chain, anchor the service sector in the UK and improve the supply chain’s export potential.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Flexible working benefits both employees and employers: it can enable people with mental health issues to maximise their contribution at work and help employers to retain and make use of their skills. The Government extended the Right to Request Flexible Working to all employees with 26 weeks qualifying service in 2014, where previously it applied only to employees with children and carers of certain adults. The legislation strikes a balance between giving employees flexibility and giving employers the certainty that they need to plan. Many employers agree flexible working arrangements with employees outside the statutory framework. I would encourage employers to be open to flexible working options when recruiting, and to make this visible when advertising jobs.</p><p>Our health and welfare systems need to reflect the benefits that work can bring and offer the opportunity to work for all those who can, help for those who could, and care for those who cannot. Our recent green paper <em>Work, Health and Disability: Improving Lives</em> reflects our ambitious approach to work and health.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
