star this property answer text <p>The Government has taken action to reduce plastic waste and increase recycling, including:</p><ul><li><p>The UK Producer Responsibility (Packaging Waste) Regulations, which cover silage wrap and other plastic packaging found on farms, require obligated producers of packaging to ensure that a proportion of the packaging they handle is recovered and recycled. These regulations have resulted in a significant increase in recycling over the last decade, with recycling of packaging rising from around 46% in 2005 to 60% in 2015.</p></li><li><p>The Government introduced a 5p charge on single-use plastic carrier bags from 5 October 2015. So far the 5p charge has been effective in decreasing the distribution of plastic bags, contributing to a reduction in the number of plastic bags found in the open environment. The latest figures are due to be published by 31<sup>st</sup> July.</p><p> </p><p>The Government also published the first Litter Strategy for England on 10 April, setting out our intention to apply best practice in education, enforcement and infrastructure to deliver a substantial reduction in litter and littering behaviour within a generation. The common aim of all the actions in the Litter Strategy is to change the behaviour of those who currently feel that it is acceptable to drop any kind of litter, whether they are in an urban or rural environment. The Strategy can be found online at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/litter-strategy-for-england" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/litter-strategy-for-england</a></p></li></ul>

It is working across Government, the voluntary sector and with local authorities to ensure that support to victims of terrorism is comprehensive, coordinated and clearly communicated.</p><p> </p><p>We have developed gov.uk webpages</p><p>(see <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/terror-attacks-support-for-people-affected" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/terror-attacks-support-for-people-affected</a>) to provide comprehensive advice to victims and to signpost them to support services in the UK. We have also been working closely with local authorities to highlight the support available, and will make sure that payments from the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund and the UK Solidarity Fund do not affect benefits payments.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Hypertension or high blood pressure during pregnancy (known as pre-eclampsia) is the most common medical problem that is encountered in pregnancy. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance, 'Hypertension in pregnancy: diagnosis and management', is aimed at healthcare professionals and women who develop hypertension during pregnancy. The guidance aims to improve care during pregnancy, labour and birth for women and their babies.</p><p> </p><p>Most clinical activity relating to pre-eclampsia is focused on diagnosing the condition as early as possible and managing the condition when it has been identified. NHS England expects providers of maternity care to pay due regard to NICE guidelines on diagnosing and managing pre-eclampsia. These are set out at:</p><p><a href="https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/cg107" target="_blank">https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/cg107</a></p><p> </p><p>The Maternity Transformation Programme led by NHS England is working to improve maternity services by 2020/21. It seeks to implement the recommendations of ‘Better Births’ (the report of the National Maternity Review) and ensure that maternity services across England become safer, more personalised, kinder, more professional and more family friendly. The programme aims to reduce health inequalities and ensure all women have access to high-quality maternity care wherever they live in England. In particular, the programme is working to ensure women are in good health before, during and after pregnancy so that families get off to the best possible start. It will do so through a range of interventions including improving preconception care and supporting positive health and wellbeing choices in pregnancy to reduce risk factors.</p>
