star this property answer text <p>The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) continuously monitors all reports of suspected adverse drug reactions (ADRs) via the Yellow Card Scheme, including those reported in association with use for assisted reproduction such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF). These include reports of licensed and off-label use of medicines to suppress the natural menstrual cycle, medicines to prepare and stimulate the ovaries for ovulation, medicines at the time of egg collection and embryo transfer and medicines used to support the placenta during early pregnancy. The doses of each medicine used are set out in the product information of licensed medicines and are considered as part of the evaluation process when a potential safety concern is reviewed. A suspected ADR may be reported at any time after the medicine has been taken.</p><p>European Union legislation requires Member States to provide spontaneous reporting systems for ADRs to medicines. Such systems are widely used internationally for collection of suspected adverse reactions.</p><p>Data from the register of patients and treatments, maintained by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA), is already used for research on the long-term health implications of medicines administered during IVF. Among the research projects that have been conducted using HFEA register data are studies that looked at the cancer risk for women undergoing fertility treatment and children born as a result of assisted reproduction.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government values and recognises the important role that the Post Office plays in communities across the UK. This is why we committed in our 2017 Manifesto to safeguarding the Post Office network and protect existing rural services.</p><p>In 2016 the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy commissioned independent research to understand and quantify the value that people and businesses place on the Post Office network. The study (The Social Value of the Post Office Network by YouGov and London Economics) found the estimated social value of the Post Office network to be over £4 billion. The importance of branches to local communities is further supported by Association of Convenience Stores research (The Local Shop Report 2018) that found that the Post Office is recognised as having the ‘most positive impact on a local area’ and is the ‘third most wanted service’.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government considered the evidence on gambling advertising as part of the Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility Measures.</p><p> </p><p>The review found that although the number of gambling adverts on TV rose from 2007, reported rates of problem gambling remained below 1% during this period. The most recent survey estimated the number of adult problem gamblers in Great Britain as approximately 340,000, 0.7% of the adult population. A major research survey concluded that the impact of advertising on problem gambling prevalence is likely to be relatively small, but identified areas for further research.</p><p> </p><p>There are already strict rules on the tone, content and placement of gambling adverts, and while the Review did not conclude there was a case for a ban, it set out measures to strengthen protections further. Further research has been commissioned by GambleAware into the impact of gambling advertising on children, young people and those vulnerable to harm. This is due to be completed next year. We will keep these issues under review including examining new evidence as it emerges.</p><p> </p>
