Written Answers
Motor Vehicles: Registration
Asked by: Lord Leigh of Hurley (Conservative - Life peer)
Monday 13th May 2024

Question to the Department for Transport:

To ask His Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of the number of motor vehicles which are subject to a 'statutory off road notification' but are currently on UK highways.

Answered by Lord Davies of Gower - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Transport)

The outcome of the most recent roadside survey, which provides an estimate of the number of unlicensed vehicles in traffic, was published in December 2023. This showed that 98.7 per cent of vehicles across the UK were correctly licensed, which equates to an estimated 498,000 unlicensed vehicles and an evasion rate of 1.3 per cent.

The survey indicated that five per cent of the estimated 498,000 unlicensed vehicles were subject to a statutory off-road notification.

Tuesday 14th May 2024

Question to the HM Treasury:

To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Vere of Norbiton on 25 April (HL3766), when they sought permission from the EU to extend the sunset clause for enterprise investment schemes and venture capital trust schemes.

Answered by Baroness Vere of Norbiton - Parliamentary Secretary (HM Treasury)

The government’s engagement with the EU Commission on the extension of the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and Venture Capital Trust (VCT) sunset clauses is ongoing.

The government believes the schemes continue to be consistent with subsidy control principles and address an evidenced market failure.

Antimicrobials: Drug Resistance
Asked by: Lord Leigh of Hurley (Conservative - Life peer)
Friday 24th May 2024

Question to the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office:

To ask His Majesty's Government whether any of the £85 million recently announced to tackle antimicrobial resistance will be used to improve access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) globally, given the commitments outlined on WASH in the new national action plan, Confronting antimicrobial resistance 2024 to 2029.

Answered by Lord Benyon - Minister of State (Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office)

The UK has committed up to £85 million in additional funding to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Of this, up to £50 million will be used to support low- and middle-income countries improve access to essential antimicrobial drugs; up to £25 million will be used to support action on AMR in the Caribbean; and up to £10 million will support a new independent science panel for AMR. It is not anticipated that these three components will directly be used to support improved water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). The UK recognises the key importance of WASH for preventing infections and thereby preventing the emergence of AMR. In 2022, the UK invested £48 million in water supply and sanitation in developing countries. For example, we fund the multi-year £18.5 million WASH Systems for Health programme, which supports governments in six developing countries to strengthen the systems that provide sustainable WASH services - a key part of reducing the global infectious disease burden.
