star this property answer text <p>British Overseas Territories Citizens (BOTC) have never been subject to the five year UK residency criteria which has been removed for citizens of Commonwealth member countries. BOTC have one of six types of British nationality which already makes them eligible to apply to join the British Armed Forces, and they serve as part of the British cohort. As at 1 April 2018 there were 130 BOTC serving in the Regular trained strength of the British Armed Forces.</p><p>However, for security reasons the Armed Forces continue to have UK residency criteria to ensure the appropriate security standards which all applicants are required to meet. This will vary depending on the Service and role being applied for and applications are considered on a case by case basis.</p><p>Notes:</p><p>· Nationality is as reported on the Joint Personnel Administration system</p><p>· Figures are rounded to the nearest 10.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Armed Forces do not recruit directly in schools. They do engage with schools, at the invitation of Headteachers, in order to increase awareness of the role of the Armed Forces in society and to support delivery of aspects of the curriculum - most notably Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). There is no recruitment process specifically for school leavers. We keep our recruitment processes under review to ensure they are efficient and effective.</p><p>Young people need to be supported with information about the opportunities and options available to them as they reach significant educational milestones, including on reaching school leaving age. This is reflected in the marketing initiatives of the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force. Joining the Armed Forces continues to be an excellent choice for young people today, and they are the UK's largest apprenticeship provider.</p><p>The Ministry of Defence welcomes the Department for Education's Careers Strategy and the greater prominence being given to vocational routes and STEM related careers. The Armed Forces are well placed to support schools in meeting the aims of that strategy and encourage them to contact their local units and Armed Forces Recruiting Offices for support.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The D-Day landings and Normandy Campaign are a significant part of our history and I can confirm that the Ministry of Defence (MOD) will be fully supporting the 75th anniversary, both at home and abroad. Plans are currently at an early stage but we are working closely with The Royal British Legion and other organisations to determine how best to recognise and support the D-Day veterans, whilst commemorating their fallen colleagues. For instance, in June this year a joint announcement between the MOD and The Royal British Legion took place to encourage veterans to register their interest in attending D-Day75 events so that commemorations could be designed around their own wishes. The MOD will unveil more details about D-Day75 via the gov.uk website in due course.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>An assessment was conducted by the Cabinet Office as part of the Government's commitment to establish the Geospatial Commission, of which the UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) is one of six partner agencies. The assessment, calculated according to HM Treasury's Green Book guidelines and by a bottom-up economic analysis of the opportunities in the public and private sectors concluded that significant economic growth could be generated by unlocking UK geospatial resources, including marine data. As the Government's authority for marine geospatial data, the UKHO is working in partnership with the Geospatial Commission to identify options to support economic growth.</p> more like this

Friend the Secretary of State for Defence met with his Polish counter-part in Warsaw for the Quadriga (meeting of Foreign and Defence Secretaries) on 21 June 2018, where the Polish Deputy Minister for National Defence was also present. They discussed a range of topics covering the bilateral defence relationship between the two countries. The Secretary of State set out the UK's unconditional commitment to European security. The UK has made clear to Allies it wants defence cooperation after the UK leaves the EU to include working together on operations and missions and the development of capabilities in the future.</p> more like this
