star this property answer text <p>Al Qaeda, and groups affiliated to it, continue to pose a threat to our national security, including British interests abroad, and remain a priority for the cross-government counter terrorism effort. We are aware of media reporting that terrorist groups have an ambition to infiltrate migration and refugee routes. We work closely with our partners abroad to counter terrorism, including to strengthen border security against identified terrorists and terrorist suspects. Access to the European border watchlist (Schengen Information System II) contributes to the UK’s ability to safeguard its national security, and we use this to make checks on individuals wishing to enter the UK from the Schengen zone.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Zoo Licensing Act 1981, which sets out comprehensive licensing and inspection requirements for zoos, implements the EC Zoos Directive in Great Britain. Responsibility for administering these requirements rests with local authorities, which have powers to check compliance with zoo licences, to impose conditions and to take action. Ultimately this could mean closing part, or all, of a zoo if the requirements of the legislation are not met. This in turn ensures our compliance with the Directive.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In response to concerns about how local authorities were carrying out this role, Defra commissioned research into local authority implementation of the Act. The 2011 report, which looked at the period 2008-2010, found no serious problems and indeed there was evidence of significant improvements in a number of areas during this time.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The report made suggestions for further improvements, such as updating guidance and zoo inspection report forms. These, together with the majority of the suggestions, have been actioned and we continue to work to make further improvements.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <br /><p>The quantitative rabies risk assessment carried out prior to harmonisation with the EU pet travel rules in 2012 took into account, amongst other things, a number of variables including a doubling in the number of cats and dogs entering the country. Pets entering on a UK pet passport (i.e. returning from an overseas visit) were not included in this analysis as they must be fully protected against rabies before leaving the UK. We are continuing to monitor the factors considered in the risk assessment and are content that the risk remains very low. The risk assessment was published in 2011 and is available here:</p><p><a href="http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.395.143&amp;rep=rep1&amp;type=pdf" target="_blank">http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.395.143&amp;rep=rep1&amp;type=pdf</a></p><p><br></p><p>In 2010 we carried out an assessment of risk from the tapeworm <em>Echinococcus Multilocularis</em> in readiness for harmonisation and which confirmed continuing risk through the movement of pet dogs. <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/animal-diseases-international-monitoring" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/animal-diseases-international-monitoring</a> As a result, the UK continues to maintain its controls against <em>Echinococcus multilocularis</em>. Since 1 January 2012 import controls relating to this tapeworm have been implemented under EU Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1152/2011. This Regulation lays down the tapeworm import conditions which pet dogs must comply with when being moved into the UK from other countries. The European Food Safety Authority is currently assessing how the new regulation has been implemented in the free countries (Ireland, Malta, Finland and the UK) and this includes a new assessment of any change in risk. Experts from the UK as well as other Member States have been part of this working group and the opinion will be published in 2016 prior to the review of the legislation required in December 2016. We are continuing to monitor the factors considered in the risk assessment as we do for any notifiable disease and will take the EFSA opinion into account when it is finalised.</p><br /><p>Officials from the Department work closely with colleagues from public health and food safety to assess the risk posed to people by zoonotic diseases. While a number of mechanisms exist for this purpose depending on the specific disease, the main cross – Government group that identifies and assesses emerging infection risks to human health (non-food borne disease) is the HAIRS (Human Animal Infections and Risk Surveillance) group which meets on a monthly basis and includes veterinary experts from the APHA:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/human-animal-infections-and-risk-surveillance-group-hairs.%0d" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/human-animal-infections-and-risk-surveillance-group-hairs.</a></p>

star this property answer text <table><tbody><tr><td><p>Since the 2013 elections, our assessment of the political situation in Zimbabwe remains broadly the same, with 2015 signalling some positive developments. Within the Zimbabwe African National Union administration there are signs of reformist policies beginning to emerge, especially on the economy. The human rights situation has remained relatively stable and reported violations continue to fall. However, the situation continues to be fragile and we remain concerned about human rights abuses, especially during election periods. Ahead of the 2018 elections, it is critical that electoral reforms are implemented, and that the international community supports the people of Zimbabwe in exercising their democratic right to build a free, peaceful and prosperous future.</p></td></tr></tbody></table> more like this
