star this property answer text <p><del class="ministerial">Government’s strategy ‘Sporting Future: A New Strategy for An Active Nation’ and Sport England’s strategy ‘Towards an Active Nation’ highlight the importance of focusing on groups that are particularly unlikely to take part in sport and physical activity, such as women and girls and some Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups. It places a clear emphasis on putting the customer first and there are some innovative programmes to encourage female and BAME participation in sport, such as the This Girl Can Swim campaign.</del></p><p> </p><p><del class="ministerial">But as the Government’s sport strategy makes clear, participation is not just about playing sport, and the &quot;Sports Governance Code&quot;, launched in October 2016, seeks to ensure the very highest standards of governance across all sport bodies that receive public money, including in terms of diversity, and aims to help the sport sector to be more inclusive and welcoming to all. If sports bodies do not adhere to the code and cannot demonstrate full commitment to becoming compliant with its requirements they will not be eligible to receive public funding</del>.</p><p> </p><ins class="ministerial">Through its London 2012 legacy programme, Places People Play, Sport England invested a total of £2,225,541 in 13 grassroots sports projects in the Metropolitan Borough of Sandwell. This included an investment of £1.5m of National Lottery money in the Portway Lifestyle Centre in Sandwell which opened in 2013. Portway Lifestyle Centre is an excellent example of a community wellness hub, and one of the first in the UK to bring social care, health and leisure services together under one roof, combining an NHS family practice with a range of health, social care and sports facilities.</ins> <ins class="ministerial">Birmingham has bid for the Commonwealth Games in 2022 and, should the bid be successful, the Sandwell Aquatics Centre would be upgraded to include an iconic diving venue and community facility. This would provide a legacy for the local community, catering for everyone from beginner swimmers through to elite divers, with the provision of much needed facilities within the Black Country and West Midlands.</ins>

star this property answer text <p>A research project commissioned by the Department and published in 2012 found that countries that were using flashing amber were moving away from it towards traffic responsive systems. In addition, there was some evidence that flashing amber led to an increase in accidents. The report can be found at <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/9209/traffic-signals-low-demand-periods.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/9209/traffic-signals-low-demand-periods.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Most traffic signals in the UK are traffic responsive, meaning that they use sensors to monitor traffic flow and adjust timings where needed, to reduce unnecessary delays. By keeping traffic moving as efficiently as possible, these systems can also reduce emissions and provide environmental benefits.</p> more like this
