Written Questions can be tabled by MPs and Lords to request specific information information on the work, policy and activities of a Government Department
10th Feb 2021
To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have (1) to consider, and (2) to publish, an impact assessment on industries interlinked with the UK betting sector before implementing the affordability checks proposed by the Gambling Commission.

The Gambling Commission’s consultation and call for evidence on Remote Customer Interaction closed on 9th February. The Commission is currently considering responses and will be led by the evidence it received in deciding next steps. It would be for the Gambling Commission to consider the appropriate impact assessment, depending on what action it decides to take following the consultation, in line with Business Impact Target Assessment requirements.

To ask His Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to ensure that requirements for land use which fall within the remit of (1) the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, (2) the Department for Business and Trade, (3) the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, and (4) the Department for Transport, and are outside the remit of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, are covered in the land use framework for England, expected to be published in draft this year.

The Government recognises that there are many diverse uses of our land that we must anticipate for the future: growing food, planting trees, building homes, natural habitats, land for infrastructure and industry, and leisure and recreation. Defra Ministers and officials are working closely with their counterparts in other relevant Departments with influences on land use to develop the scope and content of the Land Use Framework.

Lord Benyon
Minister of State (Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office)
8th Nov 2022
To ask His Majesty's Government what plans they have, if any, to review the prohibition of the use of red diesel for off-road purposes in relation to the equine industry.

The Government confirmed at Spring Budget 2021 that it would remove the entitlement to use red diesel from most sectors from April 2022.

The Government recognised that this would be a significant change for some businesses and ran a consultation to gather information from affected users on the expected impact of these tax changes and make sure it had not overlooked any exceptional reasons why other sectors should be allowed to continue to use red diesel beyond April 2022.

Having assessed the cases made by other sectors to retain their red diesel entitlement, the Government did not believe that they were compelling enough to outweigh the need to ensure fairness between the different users of diesel fuels, the Government’s long-term environmental objectives and the need for the tax system to incentivise the development of greener alternatives to polluting fuels.

In response to high fuel prices, the Government announced a temporary 12-month cut to the duty on petrol and diesel of 5p per litre and an equivalent percentage cut on the rates for rebated fuels. Overall, this is a tax cut for consumers, including small businesses, worth around £2.4 billion in 2022-23.

As with all taxes, the Government keeps the red diesel entitlement under review.
