Written Questions can be tabled by MPs and Lords to request specific information information on the work, policy and activities of a Government Department
31st Jan 2018
To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, how many deaths were registered with an underlying cause of sudden cardiac death in England and Wales by age in each year from 2010 to 2016.

The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the Authority to reply.

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, how many deaths were registered with an underlying cause of sudden cardiac death in England and Wales by region in each year from 2010 to 2016.

The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the Authority to reply.

Chloe Smith
Minister of State (Department for Work and Pensions)
15th May 2018
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what recent progress the Government has made on implementation of the recommendations Julie Deane MBE's Self Employment Review; and if he will make a statement.

Matthew Taylor took the recommendations made in Julie Deane’s review into account when he carried his own Review of Modern Employment Practices, commissioned by my rt. hon. Friend the Prime Minister on 1st October 2016. Mr Taylor’s review considered the implications of new forms of work, driven by digital platforms, for employee rights and responsibilities, employer freedoms and obligations, and our existing regulatory framework surrounding employment.

The Government published its response to the review on 7 February 2018, including its Good Work Plan for taking forward the recommendations on employment policy and legislation.

31st Jan 2017
To ask the Secretary of State for Education, when her Department plans to provide approval for the proposed amalgamation of College House Junior School and Meadow Lane Infant School.

The application, for consent to publish a proposal to open a new community school, to replace the existing Meadow Lane Infant and College House Primary Schools was approved on the 2 February.

Nottinghamshire County Council has been informed.

27th Jun 2019
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether he has made an assessment of the effect on the economy in Broxtowe of the proposed route for HS2.

Whilst no specific assessment of the effect of HS2 on the economy of Broxtowe has taken place, I am aware that the East Midlands HS2 Growth Strategy, published by East Midlands Councils, reports that HS2 has the potential to deliver an additional 74,000 jobs and £4bn of Gross Value Added to East Midlands region by 2043.

27th Jun 2019
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether he has made an estimate of the cost of constructing a bored tunnel beneath Broxtowe for High Speed Two.

HS2 Ltd has considered a number of tunnel options in the East Midlands Hub area including those set out in the Working Draft Environmental Statement Alternatives Report. However, tunnel options in this area have not been progressed due to the significant length of the tunnel, significant cost impacts and flood risk. HS2 Ltd will continue to work with the local community to minimise the impact of HS2, including appropriate mitigation where necessary.

27th Jun 2019
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether he has made an estimate of the costs of constructing an underground High Speed Two East Midlands hub station at Toton Sidings.

Some of the tunnel options that have been looked at in the East Midlands Hub area included variants of a station, both at grade and below ground. Tunnel options in this area have not been progressed due to the significant length of the tunnel, significant cost impacts and flood risk. HS2 Ltd continues to refine the station design, taking into consideration the environment, cost and views of local stakeholders. The current station proposal has been well received by local leaders across the region.

4th Dec 2018
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment he has made of the potential economic effect of the proposed HS2 works between Long Eaton and Nuthall.

Socio-economic impacts of HS2 are set out in the Phase 2b Working Draft Environmental Statement, currently out for consultation until December 21 2018. I would also note that the East Midlands HS2 growth strategy estimates 74,000 jobs and nearly £4billion of Gross Added Value will be added to the East Midlands region by 2043. Long Eaton and Nuthall will benefit from close proximity to the East Midlands HS2 station, which will provide frequent high speed train services to London, Birmingham, Sheffield, Leeds and beyond, as well as connections to Nottingham, Derby and Leicester. This will provide significant employment opportunities for people in Long Eaton and Nuthall.

3rd Sep 2018
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whether there are targets or guidance on the number of personal independence payments (a) claims and (b) appeals that should be rejected.

The department’s overarching goal is to ensure that those entitled to Personal Independence Payment receive it. Accordingly there are no targets or guidance linked to rejections. Every benefit claim and appeal is considered on its merits, and decisions are made based on the available evidence and the legislation according to which such decisions are made.

28th Jun 2018
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how much money has been spent from the public purse on repayments to EU nations for healthcare provided by those nations for UK nationals since June 2016.

The Department on behalf of the United Kingdom Government reimburses other European Economic Area (EEA) countries and Switzerland for the cost of providing treatment to people we are responsible for under European Union law, irrespective of nationality. In the same way, other EEA countries and Switzerland reimburse the UK for the cost of the National Health Service providing treatment to people they are responsible for under EU law, including UK nationals insured in another EEA country or Switzerland.

Member State claims against the UK are in local currency so totals are significantly affected by the exchange rate at the time of payment and can mean a difference of millions of pounds. Member States can submit claims up to 18 months in arrears so claims for any 12 month period do not necessarily reflect treatment provided in that period.

The figures requested, rounded to the nearest pound, are attached. They include the claims for all treatments, including emergency and planned.

Figures for 2017/18 should be published over the summer.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how much money from the public purse has been spent on (a) medicine, (b) equipment and (c) services from (i) the EU and (ii) the rest of the world since June 20016.

The information is not held centrally in the format requested. The Department does not hold information on how spend on medicines, services and equipment, is broken down into the European Union and the rest of the world.

31st Jan 2018
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many automated external defibrillators have been purchased via the NHS supply chain for (a) schools (b) academies (c) sixth-form and further education colleges (d) independent schools (e) maintained nursery schools (f) pre-school establishments (g) independent nurseries (h) playgroups (i) holiday and out-of-school providers (j) local authorities and (k) parent associations.

The information is contained in the table below. The figures cover all purchases made via the Defibrillators for Schools programme since it started in November 2014 through to 31 January 2018.

The categorisation is based on information provided by the schools or by research conducted by NHS Supply Chain.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, when the UK National Screening Committee will next review whether to recommend screening to prevent sudden cardiac death in 12 to 39-year-olds.

The United Kingdom National Screening Committee (UK NSC) will review the evidence for screening for the major causes of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in young people between the ages of 12 to 39 years in 2018/19 as per its three yearly cycle.

The UK NSC last reviewed screening for SCD in 2015 and recommended that screening should not be offered.
