answer text <p>Network Rail aims to minimise the impact on passenger and freight services and in this case is able to maintain an Anglo-Scot route despite the parallel East Coast Mainline and West Coast Mainline closures. Rail passengers can still travel, albeit with extended journey times and the need to change, and freight volumes are generally lower on Saturdays than on weekdays and very low on Sundays. Network Rail considered moving the timing of one of the pieces of work, but assessed that this would cause more disruption for passengers and freight customers.</p> more like this

answer text <p>We are working with NHS England and Health Education England to increase the general practice workforce in England. This includes measures to boost recruitment, address the reasons why doctors choose to leave, and encourage them to return to practice in GPs across England, including in both the Ealing Central and Acton constituency and London.</p><p>The updated GP Contract Framework announced a number of new schemes, alongside continued support for existing recruitment and retention schemes for the general practice workforce.

answer text <p>The Government provides funding for a range of projects which support cycle and e-cycle repair. This includes the Department’s ‘Fix Your Bike’ voucher scheme in 2020/21 which enabled people to claim £50 off the cost of a cycle service. An evaluation of this scheme is currently in progress. In 2022/23, the Department has also provided £2 million to Cycling UK’s ongoing ‘Big Bike Revival’ project, which includes cycle repairs and maintenance workshops, including for onward sale or donation of second-hand cycles. The Department is currently developing standards around the construction and use of e-scooters and has not yet completed any assessment of recycling projects for e-scooters. The disposal and recycling of e-scooters currently falls under the responsibility of the Office for Product Safety Standards, and like e-cycles, e-scooters are required to meet the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) regulations (2013).</p> more like this

answer text <p>The UK market for zero emission and hybrid vehicles is growing significantly. According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, new battery electric vehicles accounted for a record-breaking 16.6% of registrations in 2022, second only to petrol. Taking into account plug-in hybrids, over 1 in 5 new cars sold came with a plug last year.</p><p> </p><p>The Government continues to monitor the ongoing challenges in global semiconductor supply chains, which are affecting several areas, including the automotive sector. Whilst no specific assessment has been made on excess demand for hybrid and electric vehicles, the Government is in regular engagement with consumers and industry to understand the market and support the transition to zero emission vehicles.</p> more like this
