We work through our diplomatic posts overseas to promote our innovative R&amp;D ecosystem and communicate the substantial government funding available for electric vehicle R&amp;D. The government’s aim of being at the forefront of the development and manufacturing of the next generation of electric vehicles was recently bolstered by JLR’s announced investment in UK electric vehicles.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Schools have a statutory duty to promote pupil wellbeing and there is a range of guidance available to schools to support this. This includes advice produced by the Department for Education and Association of Chief Police Officers for schools which includes advice about smoking and drugs. This advice is available here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/270169/drug_advice_for_schools.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/270169/drug_advice_for_schools.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The statutory guidance for Health Education also determines that primary age pupils will learn the facts about legal and illegal harmful substances and associated risks, including smoking, alcohol use and drug-taking. In secondary, pupils will build on that knowledge and, in addition, learn about the associated legal and psychological risks of taking drugs. From September 2020, Health Education will be compulsory for all pupils in primary and secondary state-funded schools.</p><p> </p><p>The Department’s Searching, Screening and Confiscation guidance sets out schools’ powers to search pupils and confiscate prohibited items. Schools have the power to confiscate, retain or dispose of any item that is banned by the school rules or detrimental to school discipline, including vapes. Schools can set out in their behaviour policy their approach to the use of vapes and any sanction that will be imposed for their use.</p><p> </p><p>The Department does not collect data on the number of schools that have written to parents on the prevalence of vaping.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The government is committing to delivering nationwide gigabit capable connectivity as soon as possible. Much progress has already been made, and this government will continue to take action to remove barriers to network rollout and to ensure that those in the hardest to reach areas are not left behind.</p><p>The government set out a clear policy direction for the UK’s digital infrastructure in last year’s Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review. Since then the government has:</p><p><br> - Issued the first Statement of Strategic Priorities for Ofcom, which provides the regulator with context and guidance about Government’s policy priorities and desired outcomes in the communications markets, including the need for stable and long term regulation that incentivises investment and ensure competition for gigabit capable networks.</p><p>- Consulted on improving access for network builders to tenanted properties and new builds.</p><p>- Invested public funding in the deployment of gigabit capable broadband in the less commercial areas of the country. For example, the Government has launched the £200 million Rural Gigabit Connectivity programme as the first stage in our outside-in programme to rollout gigabit broadband to the most rural and remote areas of the country, and the existing superfast broadband programme has pivoted towards full fibre provision.</p><p>The government has plans to build further on this work, including plans to introduce legislation on easier access to tenanted properties and ensuring new builds have gigabit connectivity.</p><p>Specifically in Hampshire, CityFibre and Toob have both announced plans to invest in full fibre networks whilst Virgin Media have announced that Southampton will be the first city they will upgrade to gigabit capable connectivity. Government is also supporting deployment in Hampshire with projects in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight through the Local Full Fibre Networks programme, having already passed over 7,000 premises in Hampshire with full fibre through the Superfast Programme.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) has published a series of reports on electronic cigarettes including the effects of vaping on health. The reports are available to view at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/e-cigarettes-and-vaping-policy-regulation-and-guidance" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/e-cigarettes-and-vaping-policy-regulation-and-guidance</a></p><p>While nicotine can contribute to raised blood pressure and cardiovascular risk, it is tar and carbon monoxide, which are the major sources of cardiovascular risk in cigarette smoke, producing nicotine vapour from a solution rather than by burning tobacco means that electronic cigarette vapour is free from almost all the toxic chemicals that accompany nicotine in cigarette smoke.</p><p>The Office for National Statistics has recorded the numbers of people using e-cigarettes since 2014 and the combined number of people using e-cigarettes and smoking has not increased since then. The proportion of people who smoke has decreased substantially in the same period.</p><p>PHE encourages people who both vape and smoke to stop smoking completely, because this greatly reduces health risks.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>The level of provision of local health services, including fertility treatment, available to patients is, and has been since the 1990s, a matter for local healthcare commissioners, who must consider the needs and priorities of all their population. Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) have the current statutory responsibility to commission high quality services that meet the needs of their local population. Decisions about treatment should always be based on patients’ clinical needs.</p><p>If there are concerns about provision of care, it is for NHS England to ensure the CCG is not breaching its statutory responsibility to provide services that meet the needs of the local population. Where performance concerns are identified, NHS England has the ability to exercise formal legal powers to either provide an enhanced support to a CCG, or in rare circumstances to intervene where it is believed that a CCG is failing, or is at risk of failing, to discharge its functions.</p><p>NHS England has advised that the CCGs in south east London have agreed to undertake a rapid review of the NHS South East London’s Treatment Access Policy Document in relation to access criteria for funding in vitro fertilisation (IVF) by the end of November 2019.</p><p>The CCGs have made a public apology for any offence caused by the wording in the Treatment Access Policy Document in relation to single women’s access to IVF treatment and the review document it refers to and agree that this wording is unacceptable.</p><p>The rapid review will also specifically consider issues relating to equality and discrimination in relation to single women. The CCGs will publish the review alongside any changes to the revision of the policy.</p><p>NHS England and NHS Improvement are aware that the CCGs are undertaking a review of the policy, as the body responsible for that policy. All CCG governing bodies were asked to review and approve any changes to the NHS South East London Treatment Access Policy made for 2019/20.</p><p>In taking clinical decisions about fertility treatment and taking account of their public sector equality duty, CCGs should make assessments based on clinical infertility and not on relationship status.</p>
