Written Questions can be tabled by MPs and Lords to request specific information information on the work, policy and activities of a Government Department
16th Mar 2020
To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their policy on UK membership of the UN World Tourism Organisation.

The UK is not currently a member of the UNWTO. However, the previous Minister for Arts, Heritage and Tourism met the UNWTO Secretary General at the World Travel Market in November 2019 and DCMS officials regularly engage with the UNWTO.

Baroness Barran
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Education)
16th Mar 2020
To ask Her Majesty's Government what multilateral discussions they have had about lifting or easing economic sanctions on Sudan.

Sudan is not subject to multilateral economic sanctions. The multilateral sanctions in force are those by the UN and EU focused on Darfur, covering arms embargoes and targets sanctions on individuals associated with human rights abuses. The US lifted bilateral economic sanctions on Sudan in October 2017. Sudan does however remain on the US list of State Sponsors of Terrorism. The UK is working with the Government of Sudan and international partners to help address Sudan's severe economic challenges as an important part of supporting the transition to democracy agreed in 2019.

14th May 2020
To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to extend the cut-off date for the completion of Help to Buy properties by six months in view of the delay to construction activity.

The Government recognises the disruption Covid-19 has caused to housebuilding, which is why we have taken decisive steps to re-open the housing market and ensure housebuilding can now safely recommence, with immediate effect. The Government published a “Plan to Rebuild” on Monday 11 May, setting out the UK Government’s Covid-19 recovery strategy. This makes clear that construction work can be undertaken across England providing sites are able to operate safely in line with Covid-19 guidelines. A number of developers have already announced plans to restart work on sites.

To support customers, Help to Buy Equity Loan Agents are already offering more time for purchasers to complete their transactions. Homes England released this guidance on 1 May.

Lord Greenhalgh
Minister of State (Home Office)
14th May 2020
To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to allow local authorities to extend the validity of all planning permissions for an additional six months or more as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Government is aware from both local planning authorities and the development industry that, with delays caused by COVID-19, there is a risk of unimplemented planning permissions lapsing, undermining the delivery of projects. We recognise these concerns and we are considering whether permissions should be extended.

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to their Planning for the future policy paper, published on 12 March, whether the proposed development corporations in the Oxford–Cambridge Arc will be (1) new town, (2) urban, (3) locally-led new town, or (4) mayoral, development corporations.

The Government will examine the most suitable delivery vehicles and associated legislation for bringing forward development at scale and meeting our objectives for sustainability and high-quality design. This will include looking at the case for Government using its own powers to establish new town or urban development corporations. Any development corporation, whether proposed by Government or local bodies, should always entail appropriate community involvement.

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to their Planning for the future policy paper, published on 12 March, under what legislation they are planning to bring forward proposals for the four development corporations in the Oxford–Cambridge Arc.

The Government will examine the most suitable delivery vehicles and associated legislation for bringing forward development at scale and meeting our objectives for sustainability and high-quality design. This will include looking at the case for Government using its own powers to establish new town or urban development corporations.
