star this property answer text <p>The Government is fully aware of the importance of molybdenum-99 and the reliance on this medical radioisotope for diagnostic procedures in the National Health Service. The United Kingdom’s ability to import medical isotopes from Europe and the rest of the world will not be affected by withdrawal from Euratom. It is in everyone’s interest to not disrupt the timely access of treatment to patients and to ensure that cross-border trade with the European Union and Euratom is as frictionless as possible.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department has categorised local authority children’s social care services as ‘systemic’ or ‘persistent’ failures since December 2015 when it introduced a tougher intervention regime.

These authorities retain accountability for the effective running of their children’s services. Commissioners do not run the services, but do make recommendations to the Secretary of State on whether operational control of services should be removed from the council. Where Ministers accept a recommendation that services should transfer to alternative delivery arrangements, such as a new Children’s Services Trust, Commissioners will oversee this process</p>

Between November 2016 and June 2017, 560 mist nets were removed from the Cape Pyla ranges as well as a significant quantity of other items of bird trapping paraphernalia. In May 2017, the Sovereign Base Areas (SBA) court in Dhekelia issued fines to 13 bird trappers, many of whom were caught in the act by hidden surveillance cameras on the Cape Pyla ranges; they were fined between €820 and €2,500 after their illegal activities were filmed by motion activated cameras. A further three accused bird trappers are due to be sentenced in the SBA court on 8 August, charged with the offences of large scale pursuit of wild birds.</p><p>The SBA Administration is constantly reviewing its plans to counter illegal bird trapping. As well as activities outlined above the SBA Police will use all lawful means to target individuals involved in bird trapping and that will include any criminal activity they may be involved in. We will work closely with colleagues in Cyprus Police to achieve this.</p><p>Most recently, soldiers from the 2nd Battalion Prince of Wales's Royal Regiment based in Dhekelia, successfully destroyed up to 1,500 metres of irrigation equipment over 11 acres of land on the Cape Pyla ranges during a night time operation. The irrigation, which is laid illegally by criminal bird trapping gangs, is used to promote the growth of invasive acacia bushes.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Owing to a failure of internal process by HS2 Ltd an instruction from the Department for Transport not to enhance redundancy payments was not communicated down the organisation and as a result HS2 Ltd operated compulsory and voluntary redundancy schemes on enhanced terms without receiving authority from the Department for Transport or Her Majesty’s Treasury.</p><p> </p><p>HS2 Ltd have a legal obligation to honour the redundancy payments made to individuals who were employed and will not be seeking their recovery.</p><p> </p><p>HS2 Ltd will manage these payments within their existing budgets and as such the Department for Transport will not be providing any additional funds to cover these costs.</p><p> </p><p>HS2 Ltd are putting in place controls to ensure that this does not happen again and are working to implement the recommendations of the NAO in full.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Education intervenes in all local authorities that receive an inadequate Ofsted rating for children’s services.</p><p>In the most serious cases, improvement may require statutory intervention, whereby, under the Education Act 1996, the Secretary of State is able to direct a local authority to take whatever action is deemed necessary to secure improvement. In the last few years, Ministers have directed the setting up of new governance structures, including partnering with another local authority (e.g. Isle of Wight), bringing in extra improvement support (e.g. Somerset), or establishing a Children’s Services Trust (e.g. Doncaster).</p><p>In other cases the department takes non-statutory steps, issuing an ‘improvement notice’ detailing what actions a local authority is expected to take to improve its services and closely monitoring progress. We deploy government improvement advisers who are appointed to support and challenge these authorities to make rapid progress.</p>
