Cathedrals in England attract over 10 million visitors a year, the majority as tourists.</p><p>The Church supports the work of the Churches Visitor and Tourism Association on several initiatives that help the public learn more about their local churches:</p><ul><li>The<a href="https://www.explorechurches.org/" target="_blank"> Explore Churches</a> website run by the National Churches Trust provides a single online gateway for anyone wanting to visit churches, whether as a tourist or a pilgrim.</li><li>The <a href="https://facultyonline.churchofengland.org/churches" target="_blank">Church Heritage Record</a> provides geo-located data on every Church of England church, including information on the history of the building where it is available. Local congregations are encouraged to add details of their church to this and to <a href="https://www.achurchnearyou.com/" target="_blank">A Church Near You</a>, to help people planning visits.</li></ul><p>The Church of England also supports the Cathedrals Marketing and Communications Network to share best practice and coordinate national campaigns. Individual cathedrals encourage visitors through hosting special exhibitions, such as Luke Jerram’s <em>Gaia</em>, currently at Liverpool Cathedral, and Tim Peake’s space capsule, which was visited by over 170,000 people when on display at Peterborough Cathedral as part of a national tour.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The retention of, and ability to access, communications data is an essential tool for intelligence and law enforcement agencies. The Government is committed to ensuring that our investigatory powers legislation is compliant with EU law.</p><p>The Government gave careful consideration to judgments by the European Court of Justice and the domestic Courts, implementing changes to UK law to ensure our communications data regime was compliant, while still ensuring our intelligence and law enforcement agencies have the powers they need to solve crimes, catch child sexual offenders and protect the public.</p><p>After consulting widely on our proposed changes and following scrutiny by both Houses of Parliament, the Government passed the Data Retention and Acquisition Regulations in October 2018 which introduced a serious crime threshold for acquiring events communications data.</p><p>In deciding on the definition of serious crime in the context of communications data, the Government fully considered the intrusiveness of the power.</p><p>This approach is consistent with EU case law, which states that the offence must be serious to justify a serious level of intrusion involved in accessing communications data. The Government’s approach reflects this level of intrusion. Events data is more intrusive than entity data and therefore a higher threshold must apply, but it is not as intrusive as interception powers, which can only be acquired if the definition of seriousness set out at section 263 of the Investigatory Powers Act is met. <br>The approach taken by the Regulations seeks to reflect the fact the level of intrusion will vary depending on the data sought and the circumstances of the case while also establishing a clear bar below which the acquisition of the more intrusive communications data is prohibited.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The junior doctors’ contract introduced in 2016 included measures aimed at improving the wellbeing of the junior doctor workforce including new, stronger limits on working hours and patterns. These included reducing the maximum number of consecutive nights shifts to four (down from seven) and ensuring at least 46 hours rest at the end of a run of three or four consecutive nights.</p><p>A joint review of the effectiveness of the contract has now been concluded by the British Medical Association (BMA) and NHS Employers which has resulted in even more robust safety and rest limits; for example, a rest period of 46 hours will be applied following any number of rostered night shifts. The BMA and NHS Employers have also agreed good rostering guidance that emphasises the need to have a balanced rota cycle with different types of shifts, including night shifts, evenly distributed to manage fatigue.</p><p>A junior doctors’ work schedule is designed to meet their training needs and this also, in practice, limits the number of night shifts they are expected to complete (as training usually takes place during the day time).</p><p> </p><p> </p>
