A UK-EU free trade area that will avoid the need for customs and regulatory checks at the border. The friction-free movement of goods is the only way to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland and between Northern Ireland and Great Britain. A new business-friendly customs model—a facilitated customs arrangement—that would remove the need for customs checks and controls between the UK and the EU. Crucially, it would also allow the UK to pursue an independent trade policy. The UK would apply the UK’s tariffs and trade policy for goods intended for the UK and the EU’s tariffs and trade policy for goods intended for the EU. We have an ambitious and comprehensive plan which respects what the UK Government has heard from businesses about how they want to trade after Brexit. Our proposals will ensure that Scotland – and the rest of the UK – is best placed to capitalise on the opportunities of Brexit. It is a plan which is good for jobs and prosperity and for the safety and security of people here and in Europe. We will take back control of our borders, our money and our laws, but do so in a way that protects jobs, allows us to strike new trade deals through an independent trade policy and keeps our people safe and our Union together. It was very useful to discuss our proposals with Scottish businesses and hear their views. The UK will have its own independent trade policy, with its own seat at the World Trade Organisation and the ability to set tariffs for its trade with the rest of the world. At an EU exit roundtable in Edinburgh today [12 July 2018] the Scottish Secretary gave an update on the UK Government’s proposals for exiting the European Union.On the day the UK Government published The future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union, Mr Mundell met with leading figures from Scotland’s business, energy, fishing, farming, food and drink and financial services sectors. He set out how these proposals will bring significant benefits to Scotland and the whole of the UK. He listened closely to the views of those round the table.Mr Mundell said: The proposals, agreed at last week’s Chequers meeting, include: A far-reaching security partnership that will ensure continued close co-operation with allies across Europe while enabling the UK Government to operate an independent foreign and defence policy. The UK Government will be accelerating negotiations over the summer, securing a new relationship in the autumn, passing the withdrawal and implementation Bill and leaving the European Union on 29 March 2019. read more

Wellington House 133-155 Waterloo RoadLondonSE1 8UG Public Health England press office MMR is a safe and effective combined vaccine that protects against measles, mumps and rubella in a single injection. The MMR vaccine is given on the NHS as a single injection to babies on or after their first birthday, as part of their routine vaccination schedule. They are invited to have a second dose at 3 years and 4 months before starting school. For further information about the MMR vaccination, see the NHS Choices website. Email [email protected] Public Health England (PHE) is urging students to make sure they are up to date with their MenACWY and measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccines before the start of the new college or university year, to ensure they’re protected against diseases that spread quickly in large gatherings – such as meningitis, septicaemia, and measles.The MenACWY vaccine, introduced in 2015 in response to an increase in Men W cases among young people, is routinely offered to those in school years 9 and 10 to protect them against 4 meningococcal strains that include the aggressive W strain of the disease. Anyone who has missed out can still get vaccinated free of charge, through their GP until their 25th birthday.The MenACWY vaccine is especially important for students about to enter university, who are at increased risk of meningococcal infection. It is also important for students to be aware of signs and symptoms of meningococcal disease, as the vaccine does not protect against all forms of this disease, and seeking early medical help for themselves or a friend could be life-saving.Meningococcal bacteria can cause meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain) and septicemia (blood poisoning) that are very serious and can kill, especially if not diagnosed early. They are more easily spread when lots of people mix closely for the first time.Dr. Mary Ramsay, Head of Immunisations at PHE, said: Measles is a highly infectious viral illness that can have serious consequences. It can be more severe in young people and adults, often leading to hospital admissions. Measles starts with cold-like symptoms and sore red eyes, followed by a high temperature and a red-brown blotchy rash.This reminder comes in light of recent measles outbreaks across England and Europe. Between 1 January and 13 August 2018 there have been 828 laboratory-confirmed measles cases in England. Cases were reported in most areas with London (291), the South East (169), South West (138), West Midlands (85) and Yorkshire and Humberside (80) reporting the most cases (based on provisional figures).Some students who are now of university or college age may have missed out on their MMR vaccination when they were younger, as MMR uptake was as low as 80% in 2003, which means that up to 20 in 100 young adults could be unprotected.The MMR vaccine is available for free to anyone who has not received two doses as a child.Meningitis and septicemia can develop suddenly and can kill or leave people with life-changing disabilities and long-term health problems. Symptoms include a blotchy rash that doesn’t fade when a glass is rolled over it, fever, aching muscles and joints and a stiff neck. The W strain can also cause vomiting and diarrhoea. Meningitis and septicemia are very serious and require urgent attention.The MenACWY vaccine does not protect against every strain that can cause meningitis and septicemia, so it’s important to be aware of the symptoms so that young people can seek quick medical help if they become unwell, either themselves or their fellow students.If you think you’ve got either measles or meningitis, call NHS 111 straight away.Notes to editors The MenACWY vaccine is given by a single injection into the upper arms and protects against 4 different strains of the meningococcal bacteria that causes meningitis and blood poisoning (septicaemia): A, C, W and Y. The MenACWY vaccine is offered to children aged 13 to 14, and young adults up to 25 years of age who didn’t have the vaccine while at school. For further information about the MenACWY vaccination, see the NHS Choices website. Telephone 020 7654 8400 We know that colleges and universities can be hotspots for the spread of measles and meningococcal disease. First year students especially are at increased risk of meningococcal infection if they are unvaccinated – which makes sense when they spend large amounts of time with new people in confined environments such as university halls. We, therefore, encourage students to check with their GP that they are up to date with their MMR and MenACWY vaccinations before term starts – it’s never too late to protect themselves and their friends from these highly infectious and serious diseases.

Ironfly Technologies (a Hong Kong-based startup that uses machine learning in financial services) Element AI (an artificial intelligence solutions provider, which is opening a new R&D centre in London this year) and Alphabet, the parent company of Google and DeepMind – and a world leader in AI – is building a new headquarters in London that will be home to 7,000 staff The opportunities within AI are growing. I hope that you will contribute to the UK journey to become the global hub for AI, where new ideas and technologies are tested and brought to the global market. And continue to exploit already excellent UK/Norway cooperation.And make sure to tap into the funding provided by the sector deal and programmes managed by the research councils.With all of this in mind, I am excited that you have chosen to go to the UK to develop and accelerate your business, and I would like to thank Innovation Norway for contributing to making this happen.I hope that with the constant development of our start-up ecosystem and the expertise provided by the TEA and other Innovation Norway programmes, you will be able to create the recipe for success!I am looking forward to follow your developments and one day read about you on my super fast 7G 3D printed smart phone in a few years’ time – if a person of my age can work out how to use it!I wish you all the best of luck for the next 6-months acceleration.And finally: unlock your imagination and nurture your inner drive to keep pushing the boundaries!Thank you! Thank you very much for the warm welcome!It is a real pleasure to welcome you to the opening of the T.E.A. special edition here in Oslo. I am thrilled to be here today to learn from the vast amount of technical expertise assembled in this room. I am certainly inspired – and fascinated – by the global development that we see unfolding and all the international collaboration opportunities within the AI sector.Today I want to update you on the UK Government’s commitment to the development of AI and the market opportunities that AI brings. There aren’t many moments in human history when a technology turns up that changes everything. The wheel, maybe … the printing press … the micro-processor.And we are living through one of those moments right now.In 2017, when the London-based DeepMind beat KehGee, the best human best Go player, a symbolic date entered the history books.Technology is developing faster than we can absorb. Automation, digitization, robotization. 3D-printing, sensor technology, the internet of things, big data, block chain – and AI.Artificial intelligence is already part of our everyday lives, from using a virtual personal assistant to organise our day, to having our phones suggest songs we might like.Beyond making our lives easier, smart systems help us solve some of the world’s biggest challenges: treating chronic diseases, fighting climate change and anticipating cyber-security threats.Addressing these challenges are priorities for the British Government and we believe that meeting them requires international collaboration to develop solutions including AI. Norway is an important partner and we want to expand our innovation linkages.We expect that implementing AI technology will carry huge economic implications. If we use AI in the right way, we can create a more prosperous economy with better and more fulfilling jobs. According to a recent report by McKinsey, AI could transform 19 crucial industries.They found that the total annual value potential of AI alone across those 19 industries could add between 3.5 to 5.8 trillion dollars to the global economy.In the UK alone, the market value of AI technologies are expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate of over 60% by 2022 and add an additional £650 billion to the UK economy by 2035.These are of course estimates. But the potential of innovation to drive our future economy is more than just an aspiration: it’s something we’re already seeing in practice. In 2017, the UK tech sector grew 2.6 times faster than the economy as a whole.This makes AI one of the most strategic technologies of the 21st century.From a UK Government perspective, our vision is for the UK to become the best place in Europe or – why not? – the world for businesses to develop and deploy AI.You may have heard that we are leaving the EU, but we are very definitely not leaving Europe and we will continue working together with our European partners. And I am confident that our new relationship with Europe will bring new possibilities and opportunities.In shaping our future, Prime Minister Theresa May is committed to ensuring the UK is best placed to capitalise on the industries of the future and ensure new arrangements on services and digital provide businesses with regulatory freedom where it matters most.By building on our scientific excellence and securing an unparalleled partnership with Europe in science and innovation, the Government will ensure that the UK remains the centre for AI in Europe and globally. Amongst those commitments is making sure we put in place the right physical infrastructure, such as the next generation of 5G and full fibre networks.The UK ranks first amongst OECD countries in our readiness to implement AI in public sector delivery. As an example, Enfield Council in London employed Amelia last year, the first chatbot to be implemented by a local government structure.We want AI to transform our society for the better and for it to be designed and developed in the UK.Therefore, as part of the Industrial Strategy the UK Government announced the new AI Sector Deal in April this year.The deal aims to help the UK seize the estimated £232 billion opportunity AI offers the UK economy by 2030 – that’s 10% of GDP.This sector deal is a public-private-academic partnership, a model that you know very well here in Norway. More than 50 leading technology companies and organisations have contributed to the development of the deal including almost £300 million of private sector investment.One important area of the Sector Deal is education.Because many of the UK’s most successful businesses started life as an idea in a university lab, we want to make sure that the UK sits at the top in terms of providing relevant knowledge on AI. As the home of 4 of the top 10 universities in the world, the UK is a magnet for the highest calibre researchers in artificial intelligence and related disciplines.The UK Government is investing £17 million in development of AI technologies in universities. In 2017, 26 universities in the UK offered undergraduate courses in AI and more than 30 graduate programmes run across 20 universities.Numbers of students have been rising modestly in recent years, driven predominantly by PhD level places, where the number of enrolments have almost doubled to just under 400 between 2013 and 2015.We are starting to see the result of this investment as more and more universities are focusing on providing skills and knowledge of AI, in many aspects, not only technological but also within the ethical, moral and social implications of AI.Available funding, attraction of venture capitalists to London and competitive, world-class universities and research facilities all contribute to the UK providing an excellent environment for AI start-ups and growth potential for SMEs.Let me say a few words about innovation and the business environment in the UK. Did you know that a new business is started in the UK every 75 seconds?A bigger proportion of these than you might imagine go on to thrive, with the UK playing host to half of Europe’s top-10 fastest growing companies.As of September 2017, over £350 million has been invested in 243 technology companies through the British Business Bank’s venture capital programmes, and more venture capital is invested in the UK than in Germany, France and Sweden combined!The UK is also a home to some of the biggest names in the sector, such as: read more
I wish to inform the House that the Department for Transport has completed its analysis of the events surrounding this year’s May timetable introduction on the GTR network. In line with Professor Stephen Glaister’s interim report, it has concluded that the disruption on this network was caused by a series of mistakes and complex issues across the rail industry.I can announce today (4 December 2018) that the government is holding GTR to account for their role in the unacceptable performance following the introduction of the May timetable. GTR will make no profit from its franchise in this financial year and looking ahead, we have also capped the amount of profit that the operator is able to make for the remainder of its franchise, which is due to expire in September 2021.Furthermore, GTR will be contributing £15 million towards tangible improvements for passengers. This is in addition to the £15 million the operator has already contributed towards compensation for passengers since the May timetable disruption. GTR has agreed to work with the rail user groups representing passengers of Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern, who will determine what improvements this package will fund.The department has concluded that a termination of the franchise would cause further and undue disruption for passengers and is not an appropriate course of action.Performance after the May timetable change was unacceptable. This action announced today holds GTR to account appropriately and will benefit passengers. The department will continue to monitor closely the performance of GTR, particularly during the upcoming December timetable change. These measures do not make GTR immune from further sanctions in the event of any subsequent failure to perform. read more
the continued supply of medical devices and clinical consumables changes to government planning assumptions This correspondence has been replaced by a letter to suppliers giving an update on ensuring a continued supply of medicines and medical products if there is a no-deal Brexit.,The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock, has written a letter explaining what the health and care sector needs to consider in the period leading up to March 2019. This includes:
Delivering Brexit has been my priority ever since I became Prime Minister and it remains so today. I want the UK to leave the EU in an orderly way as soon as possible and that means leaving in a way that does not disrupt people’s lives.My strong preference was to do that by winning a majority in Parliament for the agreement the UK reached with the EU last November. I did everything in my power to persuade the Conservative and DUP MPs who form the government’s majority to back that deal – including securing legally-binding changes to address MPs’ concerns with it.But that deal was rejected three times by Parliament and there is no sign it can be passed in the near future. So I had to take a new approach.Because Parliament has made clear it will stop the UK leaving without a deal, we now have a stark choice: leave the European Union with a deal or do not leave at all.My answer to that is clear: we must deliver Brexit and to do so we must agree a deal. If we cannot secure a majority among Conservative and DUP MPs we have no choice but to reach out across the House of Commons.The referendum was not fought along party lines and people I speak to on the doorstep tell me they expect their politicians to work together when the national interest demands it. The fact is that on Brexit there are areas where the two main parties agree: we both want to end free movement, we both want to leave with a good deal, and we both want to protect jobs.That is the basis for a compromise that can win a majority in Parliament and winning that majority is the only way to deliver Brexit.The longer this takes, the greater the risk of the UK never leaving at all. It would mean letting the Brexit the British people voted for slip through our fingers. I will not stand for that. It is essential we deliver what people voted for and to do that we need to get a deal over the line.To achieve this I will go to Brussels this week to seek a short extension to Article 50. My intention is to reach an agreement with my fellow EU leaders that will mean if we can agree a deal here at home we can leave the EU in just six weeks.We can then get on with building a new relationship with our nearest neighbours that will unlock the full potential of Brexit and deliver the brighter future that the British people voted for. read more
Our social impact strategy is designed to help our community overcome barriers to success. One of those barriers is the low number of business start-ups. Small businesses are the engine of the economy. And to be successful they need vital support in the early stages. The Watershed is a state-of-the-art facility which will nurture the energy and creativity of our entrepreneurs and allow them to work together to bring ideas to life. That’s what our social impact strategy is about: providing opportunities that change lives. Co-working for small businesses is becoming the norm. The conditions they need to grow is changing from a four-walled office to a lively, shared space. This allows people to bounce ideas off each other and support one another’s growth. The Watershed is scheduled to open at the same time as the Buzz Station.It will support businesses in their very earliest stages while the Buzz Station will provide facilities for more established companies.
