star this property answer text <p>​The ongoing conflict makes humanitarian access and delivery of aid into and within Yemen extremely difficult. We urge all parties to the conflict to take all reasonable steps to allow and facilitate rapid, safe and unhindered humanitarian access, as called for in the two UN Security Council Presidential Statements that the UK sponsored and coordinated in June 2017 and March 2018. This has been a constant theme of our engagement with the Saudi authorities. The UK played a leading role in persuading the Saudi-led Coalition to ease access restrictions on Hodeidah and Saleef ports, imposed after a Houthi ballistic missile was launched at Riyadh on 4 November. During the recent visit to London of Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman, the UK and Saudi Arabia reaffirmed their commitment to work together to strengthen the inspection mechanism of the UN's Verification and Inspection Mechanism (UNVIM) to ensure that all Yemeni ports can remain fully open to commercial and humanitarian supplies. The UK is providing £1.3 million this financial year to UNVIM, and has deployed UK maritime experts to Djibouti to boost the inspections process. This is helping to increase the proportion of ships physically inspected almost ten-fold (from 8 per cent to 77 per cent).</p>

star this property answer text <p>​Whilst we do not hold data on the registration of sex offenders in the UK, from 2013 to 2017 the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO)responded to 361 requests for consular assistance from UK nationals who had been arrested for child sex offences overseas. The FCO is not notified of the arrest of all UK nationals overseas. The Vienna Convention on Consular Relations 1963 (Article 36) provides for an Embassy to be informed of an arrest only if the individual requests it.</p> more like this

We are currently working collaboratively to determine the effect of EU exit on the Overseas Territories in a range of scenarios, and to develop a range of contingency measures. This work includes the question of access to, or possible replacements for, funding instruments such as EU LIFE and BEST.
