I know that is an official government page but that is not what some Chief Constables are saying, or the AA for that matter.  Good luck in court.
As well as the specific offence of using a phone, there is still an offence of driving without due care and attention.  One of several indicators is carrying out other tasks while driving.  It's a matter of degree of loss of attention, but I was a magistrate long before the specific phone offence was introduced, and we sometimes found a phone user guilty, depending on all the circumstances.

Hey Jocko
I may be boring
I may be old
and I may be a fart
But I'm not a boring old fart.

Has anyone ever got a useful response from them?

Some years ago they were helpful and constructive.  Now they're not.  Odd really, you'd think with Honda UK sales flat-lining they'd be keener to engage more positively with loyal customers - they haven't got very many of them.

Honda’s reply included:
The warning message on the screen is integral to the vehicle and is not able to be removed for safety compliance reasons.  The connect system is a computer and can therefore take a few seconds to respond when first starting the car up. This is because the computer is loading.
Yup, similar to what I got back. Just describing the behaviour back to you. You can imagine a telephone conversation with them:

You: It's raining outside and you didn't bring my umbrella.
Honda: If you go outside in the rain without an umbrella you'll get wet.

Has anyone asked Honda, why they insist on the requirement to confirm the safety notice every time you start the car?
I suppose it's another edict/regulation from the EU. Sooner we are out the better!!
In my email exchange with Honda, hoping they could ease my touch screen problem, before they effectively said I was stuck with it, and I resorted to this forum, I included:
Now that we are only too well aware of the warning, it would be best if we could stop it appearing at all, or for the radio to revert to its normal display after a brief period. When starting from home, the warning doesn’t appear until after I have reversed the car off our drive, and am trying to navigate my way around the cars parked in our close. By this time, having to try a number of times to get the virtual button to operate to remove the known warning and restore the normal radio display it is nothing but a dangerous distraction. If the warning is important, it should appear immediately on inserting the key to start the car!

Honda’s reply included:

I’ll be amazed if nonsense like this disappears when we leave the EU, but in my opinion it would even be worth putting up with things like this dangerous “safety” procedure to stay in.

I was not meaning to condone the use of any device, built in or not.
Need to move with the times here, using a stand-alone satnav whilst driving now forms part of the driving test:
https://www.gov.uk/government/news/driving-test-changes-4-december-2017
So not only is it accepted practice and condoned by officialdom, it's actually required.
Oh dear. Something else to make me feel old. When I took my test there was only the practical exam. Most sad - I don't think driving standards have improved over the last thirty years even with the test changes.

You only have to follow directions from a satnav, the examiner provides it and sets it up. As Jocko says above the motorway gantry signs in Scotland specifically warn against seting up or adjusting them while driving.
Correct. However ColinS's comment, which I referenced, says he doesn't condone use of a device. I was merely pointing out that that cannot be correct because even the driving test now requires the use of a satnav. I would class "following instructions from a satnav" as using it, wouldn't you ?

I have only had this one Jazz but the handbrake has been great. The car has done over 105,000 miles and in the last 2 years has required no brake maintenance, other than cleaning and greasing a couple of brake pipes.

Maybe it will do more for air travel than road vehicles. I would be interested to see what the ingredients (and waste) is composed of.
I assume the filling station will supply "charged" fluid and the waste will go off for "recharging". It says the batteries are more energy dense than EV batteries, but no mention of how efficient the process is. If it takes a kilowatt to get 100 watts into the battery it won't be much use.
