star this property answer text <p> </p><p>Provisions concerning the retrieval and reporting of lost fishing gear are contained in the EU Fisheries Control Regulation (Council Regulation (EC) No.1224/2009). Defra has not held meetings specifically to discuss lost fishing gear. However, officials frequently discuss this Regulation with the fishing industry and other interested parties. Masters of all EU fishing vessels are required to report any lost fishing gear to the vessel's flag state. This requirement was notified to all licence holders when the current control regulation was introduced, and the Marine Management Organisation plans to issue additional guidance that will remind vessel masters of their responsibilities in this respect on the www.GOV.UK website in the near future.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>As part of Defra's work in the International Whaling Commission (IWC) and the Agreement on the Conservation of Small Cetaceans in the Baltic, North East Atlantic, Irish and North Seas (ASCOBANS) we actively participate in discussions relating to understanding the extent and impact of entanglement of cetaceans in lost fishing gear.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

Cannabis is not a medicinal product and is not licensed as a medicine in the United Kingdom and the Government has no plans to legalise raw cannabis for medicinal purposes, as cannabis has a number of acute and chronic health effects, such the possibility of developing mental health problems or harming the lungs when smoked.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2010 two applications for research funding into medicinal cannabis have been made to National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Research Programmes. Of these one, within the Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) Programme, has been accepted.</p><p> </p><p>The NIHR also provides support and facilities for research by funding a range of infrastructure facilities. Since 2010 seven projects related to medicinal cannabis have been supported through the NIHR infrastructure; however it is not possible to ascertain the number of applications received as the Department, and our managing agent, does not record this information.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Between April 2010 and March 2014 the Medical Research Council received four applications for funding for research that related to the medicinal cannabis products.
