star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises that ensuring debt sustainability and transparency in Low Income Countries (LICs) is important. UK-based lenders are subject to extensive prudential disclosure requirements under UK prudential and accounting law, including for material loans made to foreign Governments, which appropriately reflect firms’ exposures. Compliance with these requirements are independently assessed by the relevant UK regulator during their supervisory activities.</p><p> </p><p>Given the complex international nature of LIC debt, we continue to believe that internationally-agreed assessments and coordinated approaches to tackle debt vulnerability are most effective. The G20 have been supporting work on debt sustainability, including G20 sustainable lending guidelines and voluntary industry-led initiatives to promote debt transparency from private lenders to sovereign nations, especially LICs.</p> more like this

Details of the provision are to be determined by the Commission in a delegated Act by February 2019.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s position is that all biofuels should deliver genuine greenhouse gas savings compared to fossil fuels. In the UK we ensure that measures to promote a market for biofuels, including rewards provided through the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO), avoid supporting biofuels with high ILUC impacts. The latest verified data for 2016/17 shows the average greenhouse savings of biofuels supplied under the RTFO is 71% compared to fossil fuels, even when emissions from indirect land use change are taken into account.</p><p> </p> more like this
