While the Charity Commission has the power to refer questions to the Tribunal, it may only do so with the consent of the Attorney General, as set out in section 325 of the Charities Act 2011.</p><p> </p><p>As set out in the Written Answer HL13508, this is a complex case and careful consideration is being given to the detailed representations made by the Corporation and the Commission. While it is not yet possible to provide an estimate as to when a final decision will be made, a preliminary response from officials is being drawn up setting out initial views and inviting further discussion between the parties.

star this property answer text <p>Available information on the readership of social science research does not distinguish between different categories of reader. However, there are many different ways for research to be disseminated and to have impact wider than academic readership.</p><p> </p><p>Over 2000 case studies of the impact from social science research outside academia were submitted to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 Panel C on Social Sciences (around 30% of total impact case studies submitted to the REF). Analysis from the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement shows that 52% of those submitted to Panel C included public engagement. Additional analysis by Kings College London and Digital Science (attached) looked at the impact of research on public policy and parliamentary debate, showing that case studies submitted to Panel C were the most likely to evidence political engagement.</p><p> </p><p>Between 2012-16, at least 25% of Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded research included collaboration or partnership with at least one partner organisation. ESRC funded research is also highly connected to the public sector with up to 27% of funded research showing policy or practice impacts in 2016.</p><p> </p><p>Specific examples of the impact from ESRC’s funded social science research can be found on their website, many of these involve working closely with industry, government, or not-for-profits.</p><p> </p><p>We are working with UK Research and Innovation and other key partners to develop a roadmap that sets out how government and industry will work together to reach our target of increasing R&amp;D investment to 2.4% of GDP by 2027, which would be the highest recorded level, and 3% in the longer-term.</p><p> </p><p>The £236m Strength in Places Fund supports areas across the UK to build on their science and innovation strengths and develop stronger local networks. It funds proposals developed by local consortia which demonstrate a strong impact on local growth and productivity. Successful wave 1 bids were announced by UKRI in March 2019, and wave two was launched on 8 May 2019. It is expected that successful bids to this initial stage will be announced during summer 2020.</p>

star this property answer text <p>My rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy met with the Honda Executives in London on 18 February, just ahead of Honda’s initial announcement to close its Swindon plant on 19 February. The Secretary of State has chaired a taskforce consisting of local leaders, MPs and trade unions, to provide support to the workforce and businesses who would be affected by the loss of Honda’s plant in Swindon. Through the taskforce we are determined to work together to ensure that Swindon continues its record of attracting investment from advanced manufacturers, maintaining and creating highly skilled jobs that offer fulfilling careers for many years to come. That will include engaging closely with parties interested in future uses of the site in Swindon owned by Honda.</p><p> </p><p>The Government supports the competitiveness of the UK automotive sector via a number of routes. Government has committed £274m to the Faraday Battery Challenge, and circa £80m in the last Budget to the Stephenson Challenge, newly named ‘Driving the Electric Revolution’. Together Government and industry have committed around £1 billion through the Advanced Propulsion Centre to support research, development and commercialisation of the next generation of low carbon technologies, keeping the UK at the cutting edge of low carbon automotive innovations. Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation provides R&amp;D support across a range of technology themes including low carbon, materials and manufacturing; and connected and autonomous vehicles.</p>

star this property answer text <p>There is no World Trade Organisation tariff on steel – each country sets its own tariff levels as part of being a member of the WTO. The European Union’s most favoured nation (MFN) tariffs for steel, which apply to all third country WTO members without a preferential arrangement, are either zero or very low, and will remain so. In a no deal scenario UK exports to the EU will face the same tariff situation as they currently do, as the EU’s MFN tariffs for most steel products faced by third countries are already bound at zero – meaning that there would be no tariff impact on UK steel exports to the EU. The EU currently also apply safeguard tariffs (at 25%) on steel imports from most third country trade partners, where they fall outside the current tariff rate quotas, to protect the EU steel sector from unforeseen surges in imports. It will be for the EU to decide how these safeguards should apply to the UK in the event of a no-deal exit.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As outlined in the Governments Clean Growth Strategy we are investing around £177 million to further reduce the cost of renewables, including innovation in renewables electricity sources, offshore wind turbine blade technology and foundations. In addition, we have made available £557 million to support further deployment of renewable technologies through our Contract for Difference scheme.</p><p> </p><p>The Political Declaration on energy cooperation between the North Seas Countries – focussed on regional coordination in the development of hybrid projects linking offshore windfarms with interconnectors - is a voluntary, intergovernmental initiative outside formal EU structures. Therefore, the UK’s participation is not affected by EU exit. North Seas cooperation is an area with the potential to benefit both UK consumers and business, by facilitating renewable energy and contributing to decarbonisation and security of supply. The UK has brought experience, expertise and leadership to this initiative, and there is no reason that EU exit should change this.</p>
