star this property answer text <p>At elections in the UK, the police are responsible for ensuring that electors’ democratic rights are upheld. The police are also responsible for investigating all allegations of electoral fraud.</p><p>The previous Government made an additional £500,000 available to 17 local authorities identified as being at greater risk of electoral fraud and the majority of these worked with the police in some capacity. Initiatives included police analysis of data to identify potential issues and providing a greater police presence before and during the poll. Feedback from Returning Officers has been positive.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>This remains an operational matter for public transport operators to decide on.  There are already good practice examples within the industry such as Southern’s Priority Seat Card which can be shown to fellow passengers who are sitting in a priority seat. This will indicate that the passenger using the card has been recognised by Southern as needing a priority seat. The Government is keen to encourage further uptake of these schemes. It remains the responsibility of train operators and their staff to assist priority passengers to obtain a seat and direct other passengers occupying seats accordingly.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Although blood stocks are currently in a healthy position, there is a continuing need for new donors to fill the gaps left by existing donors who are not able to give blood, particularly from those with blood types A, O and B - to ensure that there is the right mix of blood groups to match patients’ needs. As part of National Blood Week (8-14 June 2015), NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) launched the ‘Missing Type’ campaign highlighting the need for these blood types. NHSBT co-ordinates local and national awareness campaigns such as the ‘Missing Type’ campaign which are intended to motivate thousands of people to start donating blood, specifically targeted at encouraging younger people (aged 17-30) and people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities to become blood donors.</p><p> </p> more like this
