star this property answer text <p>The Government intends to move to 100 percent business rates retention in England by the end of this Parliament. We have confirmed that as part of the new system there will continue to be redistribution of local tax revenue between authorities and protections in place for authorities that see their business rates income fall significantly. Over the coming months we will be working with local government on the details of the scheme. Ahead of final decisions, it is too early to assess what the impact will be on individual areas or authorities.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The British Embassy in Bahrain has a continuing dialogue with both the Government of Bahrain and all human rights oversight bodies. The Ministry of Interior Ombudsman was established as an independent oversight body by Royal Decree in 2012. In 2013 the International Ombudsman Institute acknowledged that the Ministry of Interior Ombudsman fulfils its criteria for voting membership stating that the organisation &quot;is functionally independent of any public authority over which jurisdiction is held.&quot; It was the first organisation of its kind in the region and remains unique. In 2014 the Ministry of Interior Ombudsman's Office won the EU's Chaillot Prize for the promotion of human rights in the Gulf Cooperation Council region.</p><p>We understand that investigations are carried out on receipt of a complaint and we continue to encourage these to be swift, thorough and transparent.</p> more like this
