star this property answer text <p>The Department encourages local authorities to consider a range of approaches to support and enhance the delivery of their library services, such as making appropriate use of available technology. A number of library services are using technology to enable access for library users to library buildings outside staffed hours on a self service basis. The systems often include controlled access technology involving CCTV and communication systems. Good practice guidance, from the Libraries Taskforce, encourages library services to undertake a risk assessment before implementing such a service and also advises that it is important that staffed hours meet the requirements of children and young adults who wish to visit the library unaccompanied. In managing the safeguarding of children, library services that use these systems do not allow children under a specified age to access the library at unstaffed times unless accompanied by an adult.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The legal age for playing National Lottery scratchcards is 16. The Gambling Commission’s Young People &amp; Gambling 2018 report surveyed 2,865 children aged 11-16 years old in schools in England, Scotland and Wales. It reported that 2% of those aged 11-15 years old (45 individuals) had spent money on scratchcards in the past 7 days. Of the 11-15 year olds who have bought National Lottery products (National Lottery tickets or scratchcards) in the past, 62% said a parent or guardian handed over the money at the till.</p><p> </p><p>Data from the Health Survey for England and Scotland 2015 and Problem Gambling Survey Wales 2015 indicates that none of the 16-17 year olds surveyed who played scratchcards were classified as problem gamblers. This is from a sample of 246 16-17 year olds, of whom 53 who had bought scratchcards in the last 12 months. The Gambling Commission also carries out regular telephone surveys, which again found that there were there were no problem gamblers amongst 16-17 and 16-18 year old scratchcard players surveyed. However, in both age groups sample sizes were small, and findings should be treated with caution.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The pre-2003 newspaper merger regime, set out in the Fair Trading Act 1973 (FTA 1973), including the criminal offence in section 62 of the FTA 1973 for breaches of conditions, was repealed in 2003. The regime was replaced by the regime set out in the Enterprise Act 2002 which allows the Secretary of State to intervene in certain newspaper and media merger cases that raise public interest concerns.</p><p> </p><p>The Communications Act 2003 gives the Secretary of State powers to vary conditions by accepting new undertakings in place of the previous conditions. Where new undertakings are accepted, they are subject to the monitoring and enforcement provisions under the 2002 Enterprise Act in place of penalties under the FTA 1973. This enables the Secretary of State to make enforcement orders if they consider an undertaking has not been fulfilled, or will not be fulfilled.</p><p> </p><p>If an enforcement order is not complied with the Secretary of State or the Competition and Markets Authority can bring proceedings for an injunction. If a party did not comply with an injunction this would amount to contempt of court, which can be punished by a fine or imprisonment.</p><p> </p>
