star this property answer text <p>The government has announced a number of guarantees for EU funding. These include European structural and investment fund projects signed before the UK leaves the EU, awards made by the European Commission following competitive bid processes, and maintaining the current level of agricultural funding under CAP pillar 1 until 2020.</p><p> </p><p>Beyond these priorities, decisions on the replacement of EU funding will be taken in light of wider UK strategic priorities and other domestic spending decisions. For example, as set out in our manifesto, the government will continue to commit the same cash total in funds for farm support until the end of the parliament, and will create a new UK Shared Prosperity Fund.</p><p> </p> more like this

The Barnett formula is designed to ensure that Devolved Administrations are funded in a transparent way to deliver their priorities within their devolved responsibilities.</p><p> </p><p>The government has also recently agreed a new fiscal framework for the Welsh Government, which both governments agree is fair for Wales and for the rest of the UK. The Barnett formula will remain central to the Welsh Government’s funding, while the introduction of a new needs-based factor will see their relative funding remain at a fair level for the long term.</p> more like this

The Magnox programme is a closure programme and, inevitably, this means that workforce numbers will reduce as the sites are decommissioned.</p><p>The Government sympathises with those directly affected and is assured by the NDA, which has been fully involved in discussions with Magnox on its new organisational structure, that the company will implement its plans in line with industry best practice in order to mitigate the impact of job losses, and with fairness and respect for its staff.</p><p>Nothing will be done to compromise safety and security. The independent regulator, the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) is also content with the programme.</p> more like this
