It is essential that people are confident their personal data will be protected and used in an appropriate way. Political parties and other organisations involved in political campaigning must comply with the General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018. We have been considering the Information Commissioner's recommendations for a statutory code of practice in relation to such activities and will respond formally in due course.</p> more like this

answer text <p>All projects allocated funding as part of the Local Full Fibre Networks (LFFN) Wave 3 must have completed the portion of their build funded by DCMS by March 2021. This is the end of our LFFN funding window from HM Treasury. These projects contain varying degrees of additional funding from Local Bodies themselves - who of course may choose to self fund these projects beyond this date.</p> more like this

answer text <p>As is the case with all of our Local Full Fibre Network (LFFN) projects, DCMS has assigned a Project Director to work with the Local Body project teams. The project will firstly be assured through the formal BDUK assurance process via a series of gateway review points. As the project progresses into delivery, this will be reviewed through weekly updates into the LFFN Programme Office on delivery progress, finances/grant claims, change management, and risks/issues - in line with the North Wales project consortia project plan. We use an online Portfolio Management system called Cora PPM to facilitate this. All of this is in line with our overall DCMS Governance model and includes reporting up from the LFFN Programme Board to the DCMS portfolio board which is chaired by our Permanent Secretary. Additionally LFFN is categorised as a Government Major Projects Portfolio (GMPP) Programme and is therefore monitored by the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA).</p> more like this

answer text <p>In the Civil Service, a ‘secondment’ is a transfer to an external organisation, whereas the movement of staff to another Government department is usually referred to as a loan. We do not hold information centrally on the host departments of all secondees/loans from our department. However, we do hold a record of some employees on loan for whom we had to retrieve salary costs over the last 3 years:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Department for Exiting the European Union</p></td><td><p>Department for International Trade</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017</p></td><td><p>2</p></td><td><p>0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>2</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2019 (to present)</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>3</p></td></tr></tbody></table> more like this

answer text <p>The total spend on improving digital connectivity as a result of the Welsh government’s Superfast programme (Superfast Cymru) in North Wales equates to £62.78 million. This is made up of contributions from the UK government, the Welsh government and the European Union.</p><p> </p><p>On 4 December 2018, Building Digital UK (BDUK) here at DCMS approved £8 million of funding for North Wales through Wave 3 of the Local Full Fibre Networks programme. This project has started to deploy fibre upgrades to 335 public buildings across six local authorities in North Wales (Gwynedd, Anglesey, Conwy, Denbighsire, Flintshire and Wrexham).</p><p> </p><p>The number of Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme (GBVS) vouchers requested for North Wales to date are low because of the coexistence with the previous Welsh scheme. BDUK recently launched a joint new scheme, hosted by DCMS but co-branded with the Welsh government, with the voucher values topped up by the Welsh government. The numbers for the GBVS are as follows:</p><p> </p><ol><li>Conwy 1</li><li>Denbighshire 12</li><li>Flintshire 10</li><li>Gwynedd 6</li><li>Wrexham 8</li></ol><p> </p>
