star this property answer text <p>This government recognises the importance of protecting our shores, which consist of over 11,000 miles of mainland coastline. Border Force is focused on coordinating resources and the timely sharing of intelligence to deliver the right level of security. This work means that the UK has a layered approach to coastal defence, which includes on-shore resources and intelligence and surveillance capabilities. It also includes an integrated command structure, working with other government departments and near-Europe partners.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally Border Force and operational partners are currently conducting intelligence-led activity on a number of fronts. Building an effective intelligence picture and understanding is essential to combat both opportunistic individuals and Organised Crime Groups (OCGs) who would seek to circumvent UK border controls. Border Force has established a Maritime Information Bureau, attached to the National Maritime Information Centre to coordinate all maritime intelligence flows respectively and to inform multi-agency operational responses aimed at securing the UK border. This is supported by public facing intelligence work under the banner of Project Kraken. Kraken has helped raise awareness in local communities to the threats within maritime draw stakeholders together via an engagement strategy, and develop a more effective methodology for intelligence sharing; ensuring assets and resource can be deployed to deliver greatest effect.</p><p> </p><p>Finally, Border Force has purchased new capability, in the form of coastal patrol vessels (CPV). These new boats complement the work being done by Border Force’s cutter fleet and are being introduced in a phased approach over two years. The first was deployed in October last year and there will be more in service by the end of April 2017. They are smaller than the cutters and far more nimble and responsive. The CPVs’ unique capabilities, speed and size, will allow them to provide an enhanced level of responsiveness in cross-Channel, Channel Islands and Estuarine areas; releasing the cutters to complete longer-range operations around the coast. The purchase of this additional capability forms part of Border Force’s long term strategic planning which will enable it to support operations in the maritime sector. They will help Border Force to respond to a range of criminal activity both now and in the future.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are concerned by the rising death toll associated with the &quot;war on illegal drugs&quot; in the Philippines. We raised this issue at the last session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva in October. Most recently, I discussed our concerns with a range of interlocutors, including senior Government Ministers, during my visit to the Philippines in December. During that visit, I stressed the importance of finding alternative methods for reducing the harm caused by illegal drugs, such as through rehabilitation programmes. I offered UK support to achieve this goal. We will continue to urge the Philippine Government to take up this offer and we will continue to monitor events closely.</p><p>Our view on the importance of the rule of law and due legal process is clear, consistent and well known in the Philippines. Our Embassy in Manila works closely with our EU partners and the UN in the Philippines on these issues, including through frequent contact with human rights groups.</p> more like this

Basic freedoms and the rule of law are key elements of this framework. We have highlighted in six-monthly reports from the Foreign Secretary, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) to the House those areas where challenges have arisen or on which we have had concerns. The Government raises such concerns with the Chinese and Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Governments.
