star this property answer text <p>This is a commercial matter for Cavendish Fluor Partnership who were last year appointed by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) as the Magnox Parent Body Organisation to deliver greater effectiveness and efficiency in the decommissioning of the 12 Magnox sites. The Magnox programme is a closure programme and, inevitably, this means that workforce numbers will reduce as the sites are decommissioned.</p><p>The Government sympathises with those directly affected and is assured by the NDA, which has been fully involved in discussions with Magnox on its new organisational structure, that the company will implement its plans in line with industry best practice in order to mitigate the impact of job losses, and with fairness and respect for its staff.</p><p>Nothing will be done to compromise safety and security. The independent regulator, the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) is also content with the programme.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Ofgem operates a scheme – the Fuel Poor Network Extension Scheme (FPNES) which provides support to eligible households in relation to the provision of mains gas. At present, if a household is within the 20% most deprived areas in Great Britain it may be eligible under this scheme. These areas are identified using the Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) measured at the lower super output area (LSOA) level. Note that there are separate IMDs for England, Scotland and Wales.</p><p>Ofgem is currently conducting a review of FPNES. We expect the outcome of the review to be published in March 2015.</p> more like this
