star this property answer text <p>I regularly meet ministerial colleagues to discuss important issues of common interest, including on matters relating to the UK’s exit from the EU. I am unable to disclose the legal content of those discussions because whether or not the Law Officers have given advice and the content of any such advice is, by convention, not disclosed outside Government. The Convention protects my ability as chief legal adviser to the Government to give full and frank legal advice about some of the most contentious and difficult issues the Government will be considering.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is determined to realise the potential benefits of fusion energy for the UK by maintaining the UK’s status as the best place for fusion R&amp;D. On 27 March 2019, the UK and the European Commission signed a new contract extension until the end of 2020 for the Joint European Torus (JET) facility, a fusion research reactor operated by the UK Atomic Energy Authority, the UK’s publicly funded, world-leading fusion research laboratory. This action is independent of the wider EU exit negotiations and safeguards the facility and over 500 high-skilled jobs at UKAEA’s Oxfordshire site.</p><p> </p><p>The government continues to support UKAEA, undertaking several recent investments and initiatives. In the 2018 Budget, the Chancellor announced £20m in the 19/20 financial year for UKAEA to begin development of a new UK based Nuclear Fusion reactor, STEP (Spherical Tokamak for Energy Production), paving the way for new UK-developed fusion power and technology. In autumn 2018, UKAEA completed a £50m upgrade to the UK’s domestic fusion research reactor, the Mega-Amp Spherical Tokamak. UKAEA are also developing a new £86m National Fusion Technology Platform, building new fusion R&amp;D facilities to secure the UK around £1 billion in international contracts and, over the longer term, put the UK in a strong position to exploit the commercialisation of fusion energy.</p>

The Centre will meet its wider costs through funding obtained from competitively won collaborative research and development grants and industrial partner membership fees.</p><p> </p><p>CIEL has helped to co-fund the development of new research facilities such as the £9.4 million CIEL Spen farm at the University of Leeds to provide a new indoor facility to carry out pig nutrition, behaviour, welfare and production system research and deliver feed recommendations to keep pace with ongoing genetic improvements.</p><p> </p><p>CIEL is one of four Agri-Tech centres that were funded as part of the Agri-Tech Strategy that was launched in 2013 as part of a £160 million commitment to UK Agriculture .</p>
