unstar this property answer text <p>There has been a sharp rise in numbers of illegal immigrants in Calais and the surrounding area, since 2013. This stems from the fact that France, unlike the UK, is part of the border free Schengen Area. We are clear that it is for the French to maintain law and order on their soil, but it is in the UK's interest to work with France to secure the border at Calais and other key ports.</p><p> </p><p>On 20 September 2014, the Home Secretary and French Interior Minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, signed a joint declaration outlining a number of joint initiatives to tackle increasing migratory flows in Europe. That includes a range of improvements to security and infrastructure in Calais, to strengthen the port and provide greater protection to hauliers and tourists.</p><p> </p><p>Her Majesty’s Government has long been alive to the challenges posed in Calais. Millions of pounds have already been invested in improving security and upgrading technology in Calais. The Government has increased staffing levels in the port and extended security patrols. In addition to physical searches, Border Force officers use detection dogs, heartbeat detectors and carbon dioxide probes to find those hiding clandestinely in vehicles and freight.</p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) and the National Health Service have public information on tick-borne diseases on their websites, and PHE works with patient groups to promote the recognition and prevention of Lyme disease. PHE also provides information for health professionals, and wrote to all general practitioners last spring to alert them to the risks. A new leaflet for the public will be released later this month and advertised through social media sites and the PHE website. National parks and other organisations also offer advice to visitors on avoiding tick bites and awareness of Lyme Disease, and PHE will work with these groups to enhance the information available over the summer season. PHE is also developing national guidance for the management of Lyme disease, and a research programme through the Health Protection Research Unit at Liverpool with NHS partners.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government's programme is making good progress and has now made available superfast broadband to over 0.5 million premises in the UK. The pace of deployment has increased from 10,000 premises a week gaining availability of superfast broadband in early 2014 to 20,000 a week now and this will increase to 40,000 per week by the Summer of 2014.</p><p> </p><p>With respect to impact on SME's, the Broadband Impact Study – Impact Report, an expert report by analysts SQW (with Cambridge Econometrics), revealed the Government's investment in superfast broadband will deliver a major boost to the UK economy; for every £1 the government is investing in broadband, the UK economy will benefit by £20 by 2024. It also demonstrated that the benefits will be shared across the UK, helping the rebalancing of our economy; approximately 89 per cent of the benefits will be in areas outside London and the South East of England with rural areas set to benefit most.</p><p> </p><p>The report focussed on impacts of mass market broadband services – i.e. ‘affordable broadband' for SMEs and households – and estimated that by 2024, net annual GVA impacts attributable to intervention include:</p><p> </p><p>· £0.8 billion from safeguarding local enterprise employment,</p><p>· £5 billion from productivity growth for broadband-using firms,</p><p>· £0.3 billion from improved teleworker productivity, and</p><p>· £0.2 billion from increased labour force participation.</p><p> </p><p>The majority of these benefits will be to SMEs, and over half to rural areas.</p>
