star this property answer text <p>The UK continues to invest in education for women and girls affected by the crisis in Syria. We helped launch UNICEF’s No Lost Generation Initiative, which provides education, protection, and mental health support for children in Syria and neighbouring countries. In 2016/2017 alone, DFID helped provide over 350,000 children in Syria with access to formal primary education, half of whom were girls. In addition, over 80,000 children, including girls, were provided with access to non-formal education. DFID also helped to provide over 3,500 people in Syria with technical and vocational training, including women.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>This Government is committed to prevent and reduce homelessness in England. That is why we are aiming to halve rough sleeping by 2022 and eliminate it altogether by 2027. No one should have to sleep rough, especially in winter.</p><p>DCLG publishes regular statistics on rough sleeping, statutory homelessness, temporary accommodation and homelessness prevention and relief. These are published at national and local authority level. The latest statistics can be found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/homelessness-statistics" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/homelessness-statistics</a></p><p>We are taking action by implementing the most ambitious legislative reform in decades, the Homelessness Reduction Act, in April 2018, which will ensure that more people get the help they need earlier, to prevent them from becoming homeless in the first place.</p><p>One person without a home is one too many, and we are determined that we provide earlier and more effective support and advice to those at risk of homelessness. We have allocated over £950 million until 2020 to reduce homelessness and rough sleeping in England.</p>

star this property answer text <p>An enabling power was included in the Housing and Planning Act 2016 allowing requirements for electrical safety standards in the private rented sector (PRS), and their enforcement, to be set through secondary legislation (affirmative) at a later date. Following Royal Assent, a Working Group of relevant experts was established to provide recommendations to ministers on what, if any, legislative requirements should be introduced. The Working Group’s report has been published online at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/electrical-safety-standards-in-the-private-rented-sector-working-group-report" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/electrical-safety-standards-in-the-private-rented-sector-working-group-report</a></p><p>We will engage further with the sector to test the recommendations of the Working Group to ensure that any regulation introduced is balanced and works for landlords and tenants.</p><p>There are no plans to transfer responsibility for this policy area.</p>
