star this property answer text <p>The UK has played a leading role in the development of Education Cannot Wait – a fund for education in emergencies. A key focus for Education Cannot Wait will be on ensuring that marginalised children and young people are able to access a quality education. This includes refugees and internally displaced children, as well as children facing barriers to their education because of their gender, disability or other factors.</p><p>This focus is reflected in the Fund’s indicative headline results, which commits to providing “Inclusive education [that] reaches the most marginalised children and young people in crises” with a target of “100% of supported education opportunities demonstrate increase in education for girls, disabled and those in remote locations”.</p><p>The UK will continue to engage closely during Education Cannot Wait’s inception phase, to ensure that this commitment is fully reflected in its final design and results frameworks.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As set out in the Government’s White Paper on the process for withdrawing from the European Union, published on 29 February 2016, the rules for exiting the EU are set out in Article 50 of the Treaty on the European Union. The process that would be followed is unprecedented – no country has ever used Article 50. It would be a complex negotiation involving all 27 remaining EU Member States and the Commission.</p><p>Should the UK leave the EU, future collaboration in relation to the relevant EU Prüm measures would depend on the outcome of the negotiation. Two non-EU countries (Norway and Iceland) have concluded an agreement to access Prüm, although both are part of the border-free Schengen area. The agreements were concluded in 2010, but neither agreement has yet entered into force.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Both Governments are clear that migrants in Calais in need of protection should claim asylum in France. The UK will consider requests to take responsibility of an asylum application made in France, where an asylum claim is lodged by a minor with close family connections in the UK and both governments are committed to ensuring such cases are prioritised. To assist the handling of these cases the UK and France have established a senior level standing committee, agreed single points of contact within respective Dublin Units and the UK seconded an asylum expert to the French administration to facilitate the improvement of all stages of the process of identifying, protecting and transferring relevant cases to the UK. Since February 2016 the UK has accepted over 30 requests from France under the Dublin Regulation to take charge of asylum seeking children on family grounds of which more than 20 have already been transferred to the UK.</p> more like this
