answer text <p>The Detained Fast Track (DFT) and the Detained Non-Suspensive Appeals (DNSA) process exist to deal with claims for asylum that appear, after screening, to be ones where a particularly quick decision can be made. Entry to the Detained Fast Track procedure is determined by reference to published policy available on the Gov.uk website. The policy neither requires nor excludes claims based on the nationality or country of origin of the claimants. The system operates flexibly and in cases where it becomes apparent that a claim is more complicated and cannot be determined within the DFT/DNSA indicative time-scale, the case is taken out of the process and the claimant normally released from detention.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>This Government is committed to fully involving Gibraltar as we leave the EU together. Most recently, DExEU Secretary of State, Steve Barclay, and I met the Chief Minister of Gibraltar, Fabian Picardo, on 5 December, and the Prime Minister met him on 15 November. We also meet regularly in the Joint Ministerial Council, our primary forum for engagement, which has met seven times since the referendum.</p><p>Chief Minister Picardo observed in his statement on 23 October that we have worked “hand in glove” throughout the negotiations on Withdrawal. He described the deal as one which ‘works for Gibraltar’ and welcomed the “unwavering commitment of the United Kingdom that it will negotiate future trade and other arrangements with the EU that work for all of the British family of nations, including Gibraltar.”</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>We have committed an extra £14 billion to schools in England over the next three years. This will bring the schools budget to £52.2 billion in 2022-23. This will allow funding increases for all schools. In particular, every secondary school will receive a minimum of at least £5,000 per pupil next year, with every primary school getting a minimum of at least £4,000 from 2021-22. This is the largest cash boost in a generation and has only been possible because of our balanced approach to the public finances and careful stewardship of the economy since 2010.</p> more like this

answer text <p>As part of the first Roads Investment Strategy, the six A47 improvement schemes were due to start construction in 2019/20. In 2017 we announced that some adjustments were made to the sequencing of scheme delivery across the Road Investment Strategy programme, which moved five of the six A47 schemes into the second Road Investment Strategy period which will run from 2020 to 2025. The A47 schemes represent the biggest one-time investment in the A47.</p><p> </p><p>The sixth scheme is the A47 Great Yarmouth Junctions. The scope of the A47 Great Yarmouth Junctions scheme is under review in light of the new Great Yarmouth third river crossing. Originally, this proposed to improve the Vauxhall and Gapton roundabouts in Great Yarmouth; but the effects of the new crossing mean that these improvements no longer match the expected pattern of traffic. The scheme will be redesigned to take new circumstances into account and the junctions will be delivered once the crossing is in place. The Government is committed to tackling road congestion in Great Yarmouth.</p><p> </p><p>The six A47 schemes are currently scheduled for a phased start of works, with the first construction starting in 2021. This has been done to smooth the timing and frequency of the roadworks along the A47, reducing the impact on the public. Specific timescales will be confirmed following publication of the second Roads Investment Strategy shortly.</p><p> </p>
