star this property answer text <p>The issue of suicide prevention is an important societal one that has much further reaching consequences than the effect on the railway. Recognising this, the Department for Transport has recently introduced a requirement for train operators to produce a suicide prevention strategy that complies with the Suicide Prevention Strategy and the Suicide Prevention Duty Holders’ Group’s 9 Point Plan, against which they will be assessed and accredited by the British Transport Police (BTP) and the cross-industry Suicide Prevention Duty Holders’ Group. We will continue to work with Network Rail and the BTP to introduce further measures into rail franchising. This supports the work already being done across wider industry to reduce the instance of suicides still further. For example the industry has an established programme of suicide awareness training for frontline railway staff which help them to identify vulnerable people.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The vehicle excise duty evasion statistics 2017 estimated the rate of unlicensed vehicles in traffic in the UK to be 1.8%. Vehicle excise duty evasion was estimated to be 1.4% in the previous survey in 2015. In the last three years, there have been three significant changes in the way vehicle excise duty is administered. The tax disc was abolished in October 2014 and at the same time the ability to transfer vehicle excise duty when a vehicle is sold or transferred was removed. Earlier this year, significant changes were also made to the way vehicle excise duty is calculated for brand new cars and some motorhomes.</p><p> </p><p>However, more than 98% of vehicles on the road are properly licensed, meaning that the vast majority of drivers comply with their legal obligations. It has never been easier to license a vehicle online and motorists can also spread payments across the year using direct debit. The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) collects around £6 billion in vehicle excise duty for HM Treasury each year.</p><p> </p><p>The DVLA operates a comprehensive package of measures to tackle vehicle excise duty evasion. These range from reminder letters and fixed penalties, through to court prosecutions and the wheel clamping or removal of unlicensed vehicles. The DVLA has increased the number of unlicensed vehicles it clamps or impounds to around 10,000 every month and will continue to take action against those who do not pay. This enforcement work means that a significant amount of the potential lost revenue is recovered – last year enforcement activities recouped £41 million.</p><p> </p><p>A major national advertising campaign has also recently been launched which targets vehicle excise duty evaders.</p>
