Overseas Students: Coronavirus
Asked by: Bob Blackman (Conservative - Harrow East)
Thursday 29th April 2021

Question to the Department for Education:

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what plans his Department has to support international students enrolling onto higher education courses in the UK at the start of the 2021-22 academic year within the covid-international travel framework.

Answered by Michelle Donelan - Minister of State (Education)

International students are vital and valued members of our higher education (HE) community. The government has worked closely with the HE sector throughout this year to ensure existing rules and processes have been as flexible as possible, so that international students have been able to study in the UK as planned.

The department speaks regularly with its counterparts across the government, including the Department of Health and Social Care, Public Health England, the Department for Transport and Cabinet Office, among others, about how various COVID-19 policies may affect students.

The UK was one of the first countries to introduce important visa concessions for international students at the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, and we will do our utmost to ensure this flexibility remains for as long as needed. We will continue to work with our counterparts across the government to ensure that the UK remains as accessible and welcoming as possible next academic year.

Defence: Procurement
Asked by: Owen Thompson (Scottish National Party - Midlothian)
Thursday 29th April 2021

Question to the Ministry of Defence:

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, whether plans in the Defence and Security Industrial Strategy, published in March 2021 to reform the Defence and Security Public Contracts Regulations as part of the broader government review of procurement regulations will include the incorporation of new transparency procedures in the Green Paper on Transforming Public Procurement, published in December 2020.

Answered by Jeremy Quin - Minister of State (Ministry of Defence)

The Ministry of Defence is part of the Cabinet Office led programme seeking to reform the UK’s public procurement regime, with a proposal to rationalise the current Defence and Security Public Contracts Regulations (DSPCR) within a new single, uniform set of rules for all contract awards.

As recognised in the Green Paper on Transforming Public Procurement, there may be a need to adopt different rules in specific sectors or to protect our national interest. We recognise the importance of transparency for demonstrating confidence in the integrity of the process and encouraging suppliers to participate in defence procurements, but no decisions have yet been taken on which new transparency procedures will apply to defence procurements.

Asked by: Fabian Hamilton (Labour - Leeds North East)

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, when the Government plans to publish the programme summary for the Police Innovations for Stabilisation in Colombia Programme.

Answered by Wendy Morton - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office)

The £2.1 million Police Innovations for Stabilisation in Colombia multi-year project was launched in 2020 and is supporting the transformation of the Colombian National Police. The intervention aims to contribute to the modernization of the police service by scaling up and improving police practices with a preventive approach, focusing on i) Community-based police prevention; ii) Transformation of large-scale social conflicts from a rights-based approach; and iii) Gender mainstreaming. This work is part of the CSSF Colombia Peace and Stabilisation Programme.

The CSSF programme summaries for 20/21 will be published by Cabinet Office before Parliament rises for summer.

Artificial Intelligence: Equality
Asked by: Mark Hendrick (Labour (Co-op) - Preston)
Wednesday 28th April 2021

Question to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport:

To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what steps his Department is taking to ensure that (a) gender and (b) racial discrimination is not incorporated into the development of artificial intelligence systems.

Answered by John Whittingdale - Minister of State (Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport)

We recognise the need to address gender disparities in AI. In 2019, DCMS via the joint DCMS/BEIS Office for AI worked with the Office for Students and DfE to deliver new conversion course Masters courses at Universities across the country, with scholarships for people from underrepresented backgrounds, including women, black, and disabled students. The programme launched last September and the cohort of 1265 students that started included, 40 per cent women, one quarter black students, and 15 per cent disabled students. For those receiving a scholarship, the figures were even more encouraging – with 76 per cent of scholarship students going to women, 45 per cent of the students identifying as black and 24 per cent as being disabled. The upcoming National AI Strategy, being led by the Office for AI, looks to double down on such commitments to further improve diversity.

In addition to improving diversity via the conversion course Masters programme, in 2019, DCMS partnered with the World Economic Forum to create guidelines for responsible public sector procurement of AI systems. In June 2020, the guidelines were published on GOV.UK and operationalised through Crown Commercial Service’s AI Marketplace, launched September 2020. The Guidelines, which build on the Government’s Data Ethics Framework, recommend that AI procurement in Government be conducted by diverse teams, and stipulate that specific steps be taken to ensure the Public Sector Equality Duty is upheld – including performing an equality impact assessment alongside data protection impact assessments. Crown Commercial Services have implemented a baseline ethical standard for suppliers to be added to the procurement system. These concrete interventions are intended to mitigate against gender or racial bias being incorporated into AI systems procured into the public sector, which at 40% of the economy, sets the standard for AI suppliers in the wider economy.

The Government’s Data Ethics Framework and ‘Guide to Using AI in the Public Sector’, alongside other area-specific guidance available on GOV.UK, support the ethical and safe use of algorithms in the public sector.

Further to this, as part of our commitment in the National Data Strategy, the Cabinet Office are exploring appropriate and effective mechanisms to deliver more transparency on the use of algorithmic assisted decision making within the public sector and to monitor their impact; and are working with leading organisations in the field of data and AI ethics to do so.

The Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation, in their report into algorithmic bias, make a number of recommendations to Government to reduce or mitigate the propensity for algorithms to encode bias. The Government is currently reviewing those recommendations.

Artificial Intelligence: Gender
Asked by: Mark Hendrick (Labour (Co-op) - Preston)
Wednesday 28th April 2021

Question to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport:

Department for Education: Correspondence
Asked by: Lord Sharkey (Liberal Democrat - Life peer)
Wednesday 28th April 2021

Question to the Department for Education:

To ask Her Majesty's Government what guidelines the Department for Education (1) has, and (2) follows, for the time taken in responding to communications from members of the House of Lords.

Answered by Baroness Berridge - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Education)

In line with Cabinet Office guidance, ministers within the department aim to respond to hon. and right hon. Members of the House of Lords within 18 working days to a piece of written correspondence, written parliamentary questions within 14 days of receipt, and commitments in the House to write to hon. and right hon. Members within 10 working days or as soon as possible.

As you will understand, the department has been dealing with unprecedented volumes of correspondence due to the impact of COVID-19. The department ensures that urgent cases raised by hon. and right hon. Members are prioritised wherever possible and is taking steps to provide substantive responses in as short a time as possible.

Freeports Programme Board
Asked by: Andy McDonald (Labour - Middlesbrough)
Tuesday 27th April 2021

Question to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government:

To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, with reference to the note on the freeports selection decision making process published by his Department on 8 April 2021, if he will list the members of the cross-government Freeports Programme Board.

Answered by Luke Hall - Minister of State (Housing, Communities and Local Government)

My Department led the fair, open and transparent selection process to determine the successful Freeport locations. The cross Whitehall Freeport Programme Board membership comprised of Senior Civil Servants from MHCLG, HMT, DfT, DIT, HMRC, BEIS, Border Force, the IPA, No.10, Defra and Cabinet Office.

Deloitte: Written Questions
Asked by: Caroline Lucas (Green Party - Brighton, Pavilion)
Tuesday 27th April 2021

Question to the Department of Health and Social Care:

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the oral contribution of The Parliamentary Secretary, Cabinet Office on Public Procurement: Value for Money on 25 March 2021, and the commitment to investigate reports that Deloitte consultants are drafting responses for Ministers, if he will investigate (a) the delay in answering Question 149740 on Care Homes: Coronavirus tabled on 5 February 2021 and (b) other parliamentary questions referencing Deloitte.

Answered by Jo Churchill - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department of Health and Social Care)

The Department’s contract with Deloitte included a general clause to provide support to civil servants in responding to Written Questions. Deloitte consultants have not been directly responsible for drafting replies.

We take parliamentary scrutiny incredibly seriously and it is fundamentally important that hon. Members are provided with accurate and timely information to enable them to hold the Government to account. We have been working rapidly to provide all Members with accurate answers despite an unprecedented volume of Written Questions during the pandemic.

I refer the hon. Member to the answer of 25 March 2021 to Question 149740.

Answered by Nigel Huddleston - Assistant Whip

Public safety is our main priority and decisions will be guided by a Science Board of relevant experts including senior PHE representation, who will take into account the latest public health data. Matters concerning the national infrastructure are for the Cabinet Office.

Department for International Trade: Old Admiralty Building
Asked by: Emily Thornberry (Labour - Islington South and Finsbury)
Thursday 22nd April 2021

Question to the Department for International Trade:

To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, whether the business case for her Department’s move to the Old Admiralty Building was prepared (a) before or (b) after the decisions to (i) transfer her ministerial responsibilities for the GREAT campaign to the Cabinet Office and (ii) provide her Department with support from the Cabinet Office on the coordination of cross-Government positions on trade issues.

Answered by Greg Hands - Minister of State (Department for International Trade)

The Old Admiralty Building (OAB) is the first Government Hub delivered by the London Whitehall Campus Programme, which aims to consolidate and rationalise the Government’s London estate. The Department for International Trade (DIT) and the Government Art Collection are tenants of the Hub in OAB and the Government Property Agency (GPA) is the landlord.

The GPA drafted and submitted the Full Business Case covering costs for both GPA and DIT for the completion and fit out of the Old Admiralty Building, including the Department for International Trade’s move costs. The business case was submitted by GPA in November 2019 and the Finance addendum submitted in January 2020.

The transfer of ministerial responsibilities for GREAT to the Cabinet Office was formally confirmed on 20 April 2021. There is no link between this transfer and the business case for DIT’s move to Old Admiralty Building.

Sports: Coronavirus
Asked by: Andrew Rosindell (Conservative - Romford)
Wednesday 21st April 2021

Question to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport:

To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, whether his Department has undertaken an equality impact assessment of the effect of introducing a covid-19 vaccine passport on people being able to enter outdoor sporting events.

Answered by Nigel Huddleston - Assistant Whip

The Government is reviewing COVID-status certification, which is being led by the Cabinet Office. The Government has consulted widely to understand the equalities impacts, speaking to ethicists and representatives of disabilities, ethnic minorities and faith groups. The Government will continue to invite views about possible equalities impacts as we continue to assess the potential role of certification.

The Government is looking at how we can allow venues to reopen as part of the Events Research Programme (ERP) led by my department. The ERP’s pilots will gather evidence associated with different settings and approaches to managing and mitigating transmission risk. The pilots will explore how different approaches to social distancing, ventilation and test-on-entry protocols could ease opening and maximise participation.

The department takes its responsibility under the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) seriously, and as such a separate PSED assessment will be completed ahead of each of the pilot events in the research programme, to ensure the equality impacts of the programme on groups with a protected characteristic are fully considered. This will include an equality assessment of the use of COVID-status certification where this is trialled as part of the specified pilot.

We will ensure that the results gathered from research programmes are fed into policy development swiftly to ensure data is used to inform decisions around further reopening, including of sporting events.

GREAT
Asked by: Emily Thornberry (Labour - Islington South and Finsbury)
Monday 19th April 2021

Question to the Department for International Trade:

To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what (a) line management and (b) contract management responsibilities have been transferred from her Department to the Cabinet Office alongside the transfer of Ministerial responsibility for the Government’s GREAT campaign.

Answered by Greg Hands - Minister of State (Department for International Trade)

Policy responsibility for the GREAT Britain and Northern Ireland campaign (GREAT) transferred from the Department for International Trade (DIT) to the Cabinet Office via a Written Ministerial Statement laid in Parliament on 20 April. The Prime Minister requested that GREAT was moved to the Cabinet Office. GREAT can play an enhanced role at the heart of government rather than within a specific department.

The headcount of 13.5 Full Time Equivalent (FTE) employees has been transferred from DIT to the Cabinet Office. The total GREAT campaign budget agreed at the 2020 Spending Review for FY21/22 is £60 million. £30 million of this budget was transferred from DIT to Cabinet Office in Main Supply Estimates. The remaining £30 million will remain with the other contributing government departments until Supplementary Estimates. At this point, the necessary transfers to other government departments for the funding allocations agreed by the GREAT Programme Board will be made. No other resources are being transferred.

The GREAT team’s line management structures have transferred over to the Cabinet Office, and all of the team continue to report into the Director of the GREAT Britain campaign. No commercial contracts are being transferred.

Policy responsibility for the GREAT Britain and Northern Ireland campaign (GREAT) transferred from the Department for International Trade (DIT) to the Cabinet Office via a Written Ministerial Statement laid in Parliament on 20 April. The Prime Minister requested that GREAT was moved to the Cabinet Office. GREAT can play an enhanced role at the heart of government rather than within a specific department.

The headcount of 13.5 Full Time Equivalent (FTE) employees has been transferred from DIT to the Cabinet Office. The total GREAT campaign budget agreed at the 2020 Spending Review for FY21/22 is £60 million. £30 million of this budget was transferred from DIT to Cabinet Office in Main Supply Estimates. The remaining £30 million will remain with the other contributing government departments until Supplementary Estimates. At this point, the necessary transfers to other government departments for the funding allocations agreed by the GREAT Programme Board will be made. No other resources are being transferred.

The GREAT team’s line management structures have transferred over to the Cabinet Office, and all of the team continue to report into the Director of the GREAT Britain campaign. No commercial contracts are being transferred.

Asked by: Ian Murray (Labour - Edinburgh South)
Monday 19th April 2021

Question to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy:

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment he has made of the effect of the reduction in Official Development Assistance funding to UK Research and Innovation on members of the Global Challenges Research Fund Strategy Advisory Group in Scotland.

Answered by Amanda Solloway - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy)

The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is overseen by the Strategic Advisory Group (SAG), which acts in an advisory capacity to the strategic direction of the GCRF. Its membership consists of experts in the fields of science and research, and international development. They represent academia, government, business and other stakeholders, covering a broad range of disciplines and have an international or global perspective.

Of the SAG’s 14 current members, three represent Scottish institutions. A full list of members, including their affiliate institutions, is available on the UKRI SAG webpage. I am not aware of any imminent planned changes the makeup of the SAG. A periodic refresh of SAG membership has only recently been completed, in line with Cabinet Office guidelines on good governance.

Asked by: Emily Thornberry (Labour - Islington South and Finsbury)
Monday 19th April 2021

Question to the Department for International Trade:

To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, for what reason the decision was taken to give responsibility to the Minister of State in the Cabinet Office, Lord Frost, for supporting the coordination of cross-Government positions on trade issues; and when that decision was taken.

My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister has appointed my noble Friend Lord Frost as Minister of State for the Cabinet Office where he will lead the United Kingdom’s institutional and strategic relationship with the European Union and help secure the benefits of Brexit.

Coronavirus: Disease Control
Asked by: Greg Smith (Conservative - Buckingham)
Friday 16th April 2021

Question to the Department of Health and Social Care:

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how much his Department has spent on advertising covid-19 restrictions.

Answered by Edward Argar - Minister of State (Department of Health and Social Care)

From 15 March to 19 April 2020, the Department spent £3,157,287 on advertising relating to COVID-19 restrictions, launching the ‘Stay At Home’ campaign. From 19 April 2020, responsibility for COVID-19 public information campaigns transferred to the Cabinet Office.

Fleet Solid Support Ships: Procurement
Asked by: John Spellar (Labour - Warley)
Friday 16th April 2021

Question to the Ministry of Defence:

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, when he plans to issue the invitation to tender for the Fleet Solid Support Ships; and what steps he will take to ensure the use of British steel in those ships.

Answered by Jeremy Quin - Minister of State (Ministry of Defence)

The Contract Notice and Pre-Qualification Questionnaire is planned for issue in spring 2021 and consideration of the responses received will determine the exact date for issue of the Invitation To Negotiate.

It is too early to say what the steel requirement for the Fleet Solid Support ships might be. Responsibility for sourcing steel for the ships will rest with the prime contractor, who will make their steel requirements known to the UK steel industry in line with Cabinet Office guidelines.
