These requirements will ensure that investment decisions take better account of sustainability matters. Section 172 of the Companies Act 2006 already requires directors to have regard to the environment (among other matters), and directors of large companies must make an annual statement on how they are meeting their Section 172 duty.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>While HIV is not an issue exclusive to the LGBT+ community and, therefore, was not specified in the Terms of Reference for the LGBT Veterans Independent Review, Defence recognises the importance of the subject to the community. The Ministry of Defence, jointly with the Office for Veterans Affairs in the Cabinet Office, commissioned the Review to gain further insight into the lived experience of our LGBT+ veterans and facilitate the creation of a more inclusive future for all. The broad Terms of Reference enable the Review to consider the lived experience of LGBT+ personnel who also had HIV. The full terms of reference are available at the following link: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/terms-of-reference-for-the-lgbt-veterans-independent-review/terms-of-reference-independent-review-into-service-and-experience-of-lgbt-veterans-who-served-prior-to-2000" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/terms-of-reference-for-the-lgbt-veterans-independent-review/terms-of-reference-independent-review-into-service-and-experience-of-lgbt-veterans-who-served-prior-to-2000</a></p><p> </p><p>It is important to note that, regardless of sexuality, under policies in place at the time anyone with HIV would have been prevented from serving or medically discharged. Contemporary policy was based on specialist medical opinion and included consideration of the risk to the individual if operational circumstances precluded access to essential medication or specialist services; and the cost-benefit of training an individual with a chronic medical condition in a fixed liability organisation. How the virus was contracted was not relevant; simply having HIV disqualified individuals from Service until 21 June 2022.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

This can be found here: <a href="https://consult.education.gov.uk/post-16-qualifications-review-team/review-of-post-16-qualifications-at-level-3/supporting_documents/Impact%20Assessment%20%20Review%20of%20post16%20qualifications%20at%20level%203_.pdf" target="_blank">https://consult.education.gov.uk/post-16-qualifications-review-team/review-of-post-16-qualifications-at-level-3/supporting_documents/Impact%20Assessment%20%20Review%20of%20post16%20qualifications%20at%20level%203_.pdf</a>.</p><p>The department’s estimate that 4% of the level 3 cohort may not be able to move directly to level 3 in future following the reforms to post-16 qualifications was based on 16-19 year old enrolments in 2019/20. There were 2.88 million in total, of which around 115,200 enrolments, or 4%, were assessed as potentially impacted. This was based on a prior attainment threshold of five passing GCSEs of grade 4 or above, or a full level 2 and an estimate of the number of qualifications that would remain in future. It is important to note that many students who do not move directly to level 3 do achieve that level after further intervention.</p><p>Where students are unable to move directly to level 3, they will be able to choose from a range of high quality options. This includes the T level transition programme, from which 49% of students progressed to level 3 from the first cohort. In future, it will also include reformed level 2 technical and academic progression qualifications that are designed to support progression to apprenticeships, further academic and technical study and employment. Reformed technical qualifications will be based on employer led occupational standards and will provide young people with the skills that employers need.</p>
