star this property answer text <p>Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (the CLP Regulation) is a single market measure that acts directly in all European Union (EU) Member States. Supporting guidance is provided at EU level by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), in partnership with Member States. The guidance is routinely reviewed to ensure it reflects practical compliance experience and continues to support chemical suppliers both small and large.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The CLP regulation requires every Member State to establish a national CLP Helpdesk to provide compliance advice. The HSE acts as the UK CLP competent authority and, as part of this function, has provided the Helpdesk since 2009. It provides a suite of webpages that introduce the key duties in CLP, and steer visitors to the ECHA guidance. Additionally, the HSE will consider the feasibility of developing an on-line tool to help small businesses comply with the regulation.</p><p> </p>

A key criterion for allocating the £4.6billion per year of research funding is “maintaining a substantial flow of new researchers and high level skills”. Research Councils support 10,000 researchers many of whom are in early research careers, as well as Doctoral Training Centres. National Academies also support early-career researchers with the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Recognised shortage occupations are exempt from the £35,000 threshold as are PhD level roles. In other cases the Government believes that it is reasonable to require Tier 2 skilled migrants to earn a minimum of £35,000 to be eligible to settle in the UK. Tier 2 workers are in graduate-level roles, and £35,000 reflects the 2011 median pay for UK workers in skilled jobs which qualified for Tier 2.</p><p>Employers and visa holders have had time to prepare. The previous Government announced in 2012 that, from 6 April 2016, Tier 2 visa holders who applied for settlement in the UK would be required to meet the £35,000 threshold. The Home Office published a full impact assessment on proposed changes to Tier 2 settlement rules when they were laid before Parliament on 15 March 2012. This is available at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/117957/impact-assessment-tier2.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/117957/impact-assessment-tier2.pdf</a>.’</p><p>Skills are a devolved matter. In England we are supporting 3 million more apprenticeships in this Parliament, including degree apprenticeships and more at the higher levels. We are also focussing on the higher level skills employers demand by introducing ground breaking reforms to technical and professional education to support sectors where there are recognised skills gaps, and establishing national colleges to deliver high level specialist vocational skills.</p>
