star this property answer text <p>Solar power is a UK success story, with rapid deployment over the last 7 years. Latest figures indicate that we now have over 12.5GW of solar capacity installed in the UK, enough to power over 2.7 million homes and exceeding our historic projections.</p><p> </p><p>Costs for solar installations have fallen rapidly during this period, allowing both domestic and industrial consumers to benefit from increasingly cheap and clean electricity. We expect subsidy-free solar to be an increasingly attractive option, with the first subsidy-free UK solar farm recently deploying. Some of the UK’s largest solar developers have said that they will be installing and connecting subsidy-free sites over the next 12 months.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Foster carers play a vital role in supporting some of our most vulnerable children and we recognise the importance of effective support for the recruitment and retention of foster carers. However, we also need to consider whether it is possible for children in foster care to take up the additional hours in a way that promotes the best interests of the child so I would like to work with local councils, fostering service providers and others in the sector to ensure we get the balance right. We will aim to set out more detail in due course.</p> more like this
