answer text <p>The government has outlined our aspiration to negotiate an agreement with the European Union on our future economic partnership that will include a UK-EU free trade area for goods, and a comprehensive package for services. We will also seek to negotiate a mobility framework with the EU that supports businesses to provide services, and allows people to travel freely without a visa for tourism and temporary business activity. Subject to the negotiations, we expect these measures to minimise barriers to UK businesses, including sports organisations such as British Rowing, in trading and working with their counterparts in the EU after we leave.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Cyber Essentials scheme is largely self sustaining. The small cost to Government is mostly made up from proportions of time from members of staff within the National Cyber Security Centre and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. This includes governance, technical oversight, policy development and contract management.</p><p> </p><p>The original start-up costs included an injection of investment from the Government's National Cyber Security Programme in 2014 of £766,000, but this does not include the staffing costs from the three departments which originally developed the scheme: GCHQ, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, and the Cabinet Office.</p><p> </p><p>The financial model for delivery of the Cyber Essentials scheme involves Government overseeing the governance, technical oversight, policy development and contract management of five industry Accreditation Bodies. The Accreditation Bodies are responsible for marketing the scheme along with their Certification Bodies and providing the certificates to those wishing to achieve certification. The Accreditation Bodies and Certification Bodies charge a fee for the issuing of certificates and any related services provided.</p>

There is no specific criteria that requires public libraries to provide safe, welcoming and accessible physical and virtual environments freely open to all, although we would hope and expect them to do as much as can reasonably be done in this regard.</p> more like this

answer text <p>DCMS works with the Libraries Taskforce and local and central government to promote good practice and innovation to sustain and improve library services provided by local authorities in England, including in Barnet. Library services in England can help transform lives, communities and society as a whole, including in relation to children by supporting them to develop and enjoy their reading; to learn and study; and to take part in events and activities. For instance, the annual Summer Reading Challenge, run by The Reading Agency, promotes reading for children at their local libraries and has resulted in many thousands of children aged 4 – 11 joining a library and accessing library services.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, DCMS provided £3.9 million to the Libraries: Opportunities for Everyone innovation fund to enable library services to trial innovative projects that would benefit disadvantaged people and places in England. These included a number of projects which promoted children’s access to library services.</p>

In response to this, in November 2017 Ofcom launched a review of children’s content. Ofcom has asked the public service broadcasters to develop and share their plans to address Ofcom’s concerns on children’s content and we look forward to Ofcom’s assessment of these plans in due course.</p><p> </p><p>The government is also providing direct support to the development of children’s content through the Contestable Fund pilot, which will provide up to £60 million to help stimulate the provision and plurality of UK-originated content for young audiences and radio.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Block Grant Transparency publication (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/block-grant-transparency-december-2017-publication) sets out details of all additions to the Devolved Administrations’ budgets since the 2015 Spending Review. The Barnett Formula will have been applied to all changes to the DCMS budget at both Spending Reviews and at Fiscal Events in the normal way as set out in the Statement of Funding Policy.</p><p> </p><p>Companies from across the country have been directly engaged in legacy infrastructure and projects - for example, South Wales based Pro Steel were awarded contracts as part of the transformation of the Olympic Stadium roof post-2012 Games, they secured a £1m loan to enable them to compete for the work from Finance Wales. Pro Steel were also awarded a subcontract by BAM Nuttal for transformation work in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park post games consisting of re-purposing and construction of a bridge in the north of the Park near the Velodrome. They were also awarded the contract to make modifications and strengthening works to another bridge, and supply and installation of a third bridge.</p><p> </p><p>Last week I met with my counterparts in Wales and Scotland to discuss the many opportunities the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games presents to the whole of the UK. The department and I look forward to continuing to work closely with the devolved nations to ensure the many opportunities the Games presents - from hosting the Queen's Baton Relay to providing a base for athletes to train - are seized across the country.</p>
