star this property answer text <p>Since wearing seatbelts became mandatory in 1983, there has been a sharp fall in the total number of people killed while driving. Seat belts save lives and the laws we have in place requiring people to wear seat belts are there to save lives. We are grateful to PACTS for looking in considerable detail at what lies behind the disproportionately high number of people incurring fatal injuries while not wearing seat belts. We are currently considering their recommendations and the range of tools at our disposal to increase seatbelt wearing.</p> more like this

In February £1m of grant funding was awarded to three technology providers to support the accreditation testing of vehicle retrofit technologies, in particular for HGVs and coaches.</p><p> </p><p>From 1 September 2018, DVSA enforcement staff across Great Britain have been checking lorries for emissions cheat devices. Cheat devices mean a lorry can produce up to 20 times more dangerous emissions. The national rollout of checks follows a successful year-long pilot. During the pilot, DVSA enforcement staff caught 449 emission cheats at 5 sites across the country.</p> more like this

However, given that the vast majority, if not all, of the potential wrong doing is likely to have occurred at Volkswagen AG in Germany, it is for the German Government in the first place to take action. The Department will assess the prospects of taking action in the UK, once the German investigation is complete and based on any available evidence.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

Neither Defra nor the Forestry Commission records tree planting data except for trees planted in England with central government support.</p><p> </p><p>The latest figures from the Forestry Commission’s Corporate Plan Performance Indicators, published on 13 June, show that from April 2018 to March 2019 at least 2.06 million trees have been planted with central government support, equivalent to approximately 1,273 hectares of woodland creation.</p><p> </p><p>The Forestry Commissioners are responsible for the control of tree felling under the provisions in Part II of the Forestry Act 1967 (as amended). However, there are a number of exemptions from the requirements for a Felling Licence, including trees growing in private gardens, trees felled directly as a result of the granting of planning permission, felling approved in a legacy English Woodland Grant Scheme and trees felled on the Public Forest Estate. There is also no obligation to fell the trees once a Licence, which can be valid for up to 10 years, has been granted. These are some of the reasons why we do not know how many trees have been cut down. In the vast majority of cases where clear felling has been approved there will be a restocking requirement attached to the Licence.</p><p> </p><p>The Forestry Commission also publishes, as part of its Corporate Plan Performance Indicators, the net change in woodland area based on the balance between new planting of woodland and woodland removal, this information was last updated on 13 June 2019 and can be found at:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/forestry-commission-corporate-plan-performance-indicators" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/forestry-commission-corporate-plan-performance-indicators</a></p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK continues to engage with a range of opposition, members of the protest movement as well as the Transitional Military Council (TMC). We have frequently called for the Sudanese authorities, both in public and directly with them in Khartoum, to ensure that peaceful protests are not met with violence and those responsible for the injuries and deaths of protestors are held to account. The UK, alongside Troika partners Norway and the US, has called for all sides to engage in an inclusive dialogue that leads to a swift, orderly and peaceful transition to civilian rule. On 4 June in a joint Troika statement, we condemned the recent violent attacks by Sudanese security forces against peaceful protestors in Sudan which left many civilians dead or injured. We also expressed serious concern over TMC's announcement that it would cease negotiations and called for an agreed transfer of power to a civilian-led government.</p><p>On 6 June, I summoned the Sudanese Ambassador to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to express our grave concerns at the use of violence against civilians by the Sudanese authorities. The UK has called for the human rights of all Sudanese people to be respected, and the resumption of the political process leading to an agreed peaceful transfer of power to a civilian-led government, as demanded by the Sudanese people. We will continue to engage with all sides to support a settlement that works for all Sudanese people.</p><p>The UK also continues to promote comprehensive peace negotiations through our role in the Troika. Alongside the US and Norway we engage regularly with the African Union (AU) building on long standing support to the AU's mediation efforts to encourage peace and security in Sudan.</p>
