star this property answer text <p>All DWP staff delivering Universal Credit undergo a comprehensive learning journey designed to equip them with the tools, skills and behaviours required to provide a high quality service to all claimants, including those who have cancer and other serious health conditions. Colleagues receive on-going learning in their roles and have access to Universal Credit guidance which is refreshed at regular intervals.</p><p> </p><p>The Department takes seriously the need to support vulnerable claimants. We are committed to ensuring that people who have cancer are treated with the upmost sensitivity and care, when making a claim to Universal Credit.</p><p> </p><p>We are continuously reviewing and improving the service for vulnerable people who claim Universal Credit to ensure that it is accessible and responsive to their needs. This includes how they are identified and supported, either from our own staff or via referrals from local services. For instance, when a claimant is asked to attend a Work Capability Assessment, they are required to complete a UC50 questionnaire which incorporates a 'light touch' evidence gathering process for cancer patients; and makes clear that Clinical Nurse Specialists and consultants can provide information on the form.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are committed to a greener, cleaner transport system. That’s why we are modernising the UK rail fleet to introduce more electric, bi-mode (electric and diesel hybrid) and alternative-fuel trains to the network. Better trains and upgraded infrastructure will take polluting cars and lorries off our roads – reducing the overall carbon footprint of UK transport – making our air cleaner..</p><p> </p><p>On the Midland Main Line, brand new intercity trains will be introduced, which will have less environmental impact than the current trains, some of which are over 30 years old. They will be bi-mode, which means they can also take advantage of the electrified parts of the line.</p><p> </p><p>Our ambition is that these will be the cleanest ever bi-mode trains. Abellio, who have recently been awarded the new East Midlands Railway franchise, are seeking innovative ways to keep emissions to a minimum when running under diesel power. It is not possible to accurately calculate the environmental impact of new bi-mode trains until the design and development of the new trains is complete.</p><p> </p><p>This new franchise will be at the forefront of delivering a cleaner, greener rail network. Abellio will trial hydrogen fuel cell trains on the Midland Main Line and will run zero-carbon pilots at six stations along the route.</p><p> </p><p>Once the transformation of the Great Western is complete the new Intercity Express trains will spend most of the journey between London and Swansea in electric mode. In diesel mode the new trains meet the highest rolling stock emissions standards.</p><p> </p><p>On Windermere to Oxenholme, there are proposals for alternative fuel trials involving battery technology by Northern on the Lakes Line.</p>
