star this property answer text <p>The museum sector in England is vibrant and dynamic, and has an impact on a wide variety of social outcomes including education, health and wellbeing, community cohesion and social inclusion. Independent museums are an important and successful part of the museums sector: around half of the museums accredited by Arts Council England are independent. In addition, the Association of Independent Museums estimates that they are visited by over 9 million people annually.</p><p> </p><p>Over the last ten years, museums have received over £800m annually from public sources. DCMS supports museums through Arts Council England, the museum sector development agency. Arts Council England funds some independent museums directly as National Portfolio Organisations, as well as supporting many projects run by them through its grants programmes and strategic funds. It also funds Sector Support Organisations and Museum</p><p>Development organisations which can also assist independent museums. Independent museums are eligible for other public funding such as capital grants from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and support for permanent and temporary exhibitions through the Museums and Galleries tax relief introduced in 2017. The £4m 2018-20 round of DCMS/Wolfson Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund awarded 40% of its funding to independent museums.</p>

It is a matter for individual sports organisations themselves whether they wish to participate in the Framework and sign up to the Declaration. We welcome that both the All England Lawn Tennis Club and The Rugby League World Cup 2021 have done so.

star this property answer text <p>The sale of wearable GPS tracking devices, including where they are sold to assist with the care of dementia patients, is subject to UK consumer protection legislation. This legislation includes the Consumer Rights Act 2015 under which all goods and services must be of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, all personal data collected by GPS devices is subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 which is regulated by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). This legislation provides that any data collected must be processed transparently, fairly and for legitimate purposes. Companies developing new technologies which are likely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects are also required to complete a Data Protection Impact Assessment before the processing begins. In these instances, the company will be required to consult the ICO if their assessment indicates the processing would result in a high risk in the absence of any mitigating actions.</p><p> </p><p>As GPS tracking is used for a wide range of applications, there are also some cases where other regulations may apply. For example, Section B of the Bail Act 1997 includes provisions in respect of electronic monitoring of people on bail.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is committed to supporting the responsible use of technology to improve people's lives, including supporting its use to help vulnerable people like dementia patients. The Medical Research Council, the Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer's Research UK are jointly investing £290 million in the UK Dementia Research Institute at Imperial College London which looks at technology solutions that can assist people with dementia in their homes. Our Industrial Strategy also includes the Ageing Society Grand Challenge through which the Government will invest in the further development of technologies like Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things with the aim that people can enjoy at least five extra healthy independent years of life by 2035.</p><p> </p><p>The Government also recognises the importance of ensuring that regulation is able to keep pace as technology advances. On 11th June, we published our White Paper on Regulation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The White Paper confirmed that the Government will establish a Regulatory Horizons Council to identify the implications of technological innovation and advise the government on regulatory reform needed to support its safe introduction.</p><p> </p>
