star this property answer text <p>St Helena’s most famous resident, Jonathan the tortoise, is looked after by the island vet who ensures a high-standard of care to the world’s oldest terrestrial animal. After much deliberation on the island, the vet decided removing Jonathan’s cataracts was too high-risk a procedure. I reassure the noble Lord that despite being over 186 years old, Jonathan continues to lead an active life. The climate on St Helena, while perfect for diving and mountain walking, is not conducive to breeding this species of tortoise. The commencement of weekly flights to St Helena from South Africa is a welcome boost to St Helena’s tourism industry, and will allow even more people to meet this much loved member of the St Helena community.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In her speech to the Commonwealth Forums on 17 April the Prime Minister set out the UK's readiness to support any member state wanting to reform outdated legislation that makes discrimination on the grounds of gender identity or sexual orientation possible. The Prime Minister was clear that while we must respect one another's cultures and traditions, we must do so in a manner consistent with our common value of equality, a value that is clearly stated in the Commonwealth Charter. The Foreign Secretary and other FCO Ministers discussed LGBT rights with a range of Foreign Ministers during the week of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.</p><p>During the same week, we announced a £5.6 million programme working with civil society groups to support countries wishing to work towards legislative reform, and published an International Best Practice Guide to Equality on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity which highlights promising steps taken by countries in all regions of the world to protect and support LGBT people, including positive policy and practice that often set the groundwork for decriminalisation and amending legislation.</p>
