star this property answer text <p>The Government is not currently considering providing compensation to landowners in relation to large-scale commercial dumping of waste on private land.</p><p> </p><p>Fly-tipping is unacceptable whether it occurs on public or private land. However, fly-tipping on private land is a difficult issue. Local authorities are not under any legal obligation to clear fly-tipped waste from private property, so this responsibility falls to the landowner. Some authorities may offer a clearance service but they are likely to charge for this. If, following an investigation, a conviction is secured then the court can award compensation which covers the costs of clearance of waste to the landowner.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>NHS England is aware of <em>Rural proofing: practical guidance to assess impacts of policies on rural areas</em>, published by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in March 2017.</p><p> </p><p>All Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) build on the Five Year Forward View to present an overall strategy for their geographic footprint and identify the three to five key priorities required to realise their vision. This should take account of specific challenges facing each area, which could include a dispersed, rural population.</p><p> </p><p>STPs have been in the public domain for several months. Partner organisations within each area are engaging both rural and urban communities on their plans and, where required by law, consulting on service change.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England and NHS Improvement continue to provide ongoing support to each STP area. In September 2016, they published <em>Engaging Local People: A guide for local areas developing Sustainability and Transformation Plans</em>, which set out how STP areas should reach out to stakeholders in their areas. A copy of the guidance is attached.</p><p> </p><p>The NHS is exploring ways to better adapt health provision for rural areas. For example, the vanguard covering Morecambe Bay Health Community is improving healthcare in a geographically isolated area by using a high definition telemedicine link between a general practitioner (GP) surgery in Millom and the accident and emergency (A&amp;E) department in Barrow-in-Furness. This means when GPs can seek a second opinion as to whether a patient needs intensive treatment or can be treated in the community – they can call through and have an A&amp;E specialist examine the patient. This means that over the 1,000 square miles that Morecambe Bay covers, patients can have access to expert opinion without having to travel further than their nearest GP.</p><p> </p><p>On 31 March, <em>Next steps on the NHS Five Year Forward View</em> was published by NHS England. The document outlined a 10-point care and efficiency plan which will further contribute to improving the health outcomes of those living in rural areas. A copy of this document is attached.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority has advised that the guidance on the follow up of any children born following mitochondrial donation is set out in paragraph 33.33 in Guidance Note 33 of the Authority’s code of practice. This requires the centre to have a documented process setting out how children born from mitochondrial donation will be followed up, where the patients have consented to follow-up. These should include long-term medical follow-up of the children born.

star this property answer text <p>Latest statistics to 2016 show 3.2 million working-age adults in working families living in relative low income before housing costs. This compares with 2.8 million in 2010. In terms of percentages, in 2016 this equates to 8% of all working-age adults and similarly in 2010 this was also 8% of all working-age adults.</p><p> </p><p>However there are currently record numbers of people in work – 2.8 million more since 2010. As a consequence, this has resulted in some increases in the number of individuals in work and in low income.</p><p> </p><p>We realise that some people first moving into work might be in low income in the short term. But by being in work they have the opportunity of increasing their earnings, rather than just being left to live a life on benefits.</p><p> </p><p>We are introducing Universal Credit and this is revolutionising the welfare system by making work pay. Universal Credit contains structural incentives to encourage people to work more and earn more. It is simple and as people’s earnings increase their payments reduce at a steady rate (there are no cliff edges), so it is clear to them that they will always be better off working and earning more.</p><p> </p><p>We have also increased the tax free Personal Allowance so that people can earn more and keep more of what they earn and introduced the National Living Wage. The tax-free personal allowance will be £11,500 in April 2017, a major step towards our goal of reaching £12,500 by 2021. As of April 2017, a typical basic rate taxpayer will pay over £1,000 less income tax, compared to 2010-11. This will be an income tax cut for over 30 million people and will mean taking 4 million of the lowest paid out of income tax completely during the last Parliament. The introduction of the National Living Wage, means a full-time worker previously on the national minimum wage is now £900 a year better off.‎</p><p> </p><p>These changes, combined with the highest employment rate on record – mean that work continues to be the best route out of low income. Just 6% of working-age adults in households where everyone is working are in relative low income before housing costs, compared to nearly half (46%) of adults in workless households.</p>
