star this property answer text <p>The Department follows expert advice from the Health and Safety Executive regulator that when asbestos-containing materials are undamaged, and not in locations where they are vulnerable to damage, they should be left undisturbed and their condition monitored. Blanket or accelerated removal of asbestos could potentially be dangerous, as it releases harmful fibres that would otherwise be contained.</p><p>The amount of asbestos in schools will reduce over time through rebuilding and refurbishment of the estate. When asbestos cannot be effectively managed in situ, it should be removed and the Department will provide condition funding which can be used to manage asbestos safely.</p><p>Since 2015, the Department has allocated over £7.4 billion to those responsible for school buildings for essential maintenance, including removing or encapsulating asbestos when it is the safest course of action to do so.</p><p>Through the Priority School Building Programme, the Department is rebuilding or refurbishing buildings in the worst condition at over 500 schools across the country. Asbestos was a factor in prioritising buildings for the programme.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Litigants in person do require support to help them navigate the justice system and this is why since 2014-15 the Ministry of Justice has invested close to £8m in support for them in the civil and family courts, through the Litigants in Person Support Strategy. The strategy works with a range of partners across England and Wales in the advice, voluntary and pro bono sectors to provide practical support for litigants in person. This includes online and self-help resources, as well as access to free or affordable legal advice and representation, where possible. Access to a lawyer is not always the right or most affordable way to solve an issue in the most effective way</p><p> </p><p>Additionally, we announced in the Legal Support Action Plan in February 2019 that we are providing a further £3m of funding over the next two years to enhance support for litigants in person, ensuring those representing themselves in court understand the process and are better supported through it.</p><p> </p><p>Through the HMCTS reform programme, the Government is also investing over £1bn to build a modern system for administering justice which will benefit everyone who uses it. By designing systems around the public who need and use our services, we can create a more effective system for them and generate efficiencies for the taxpayer.</p>
