The UK High Commission does not hold detailed information on all visits, but does not believe it has visited the Kalash community in recent times. We regularly raise our concerns about the protection of minority communities with the Pakistan Government at a senior level.</p><p>We continue to urge the Government of Pakistan to guarantee the rights of all people in Pakistan, particularly the most vulnerable as laid down in the Constitution of Pakistan and in accordance with international standards.</p> more like this

Since then, there have been fewer than ten complaints of bullying, harassment or sexual misconduct made against members of the House of Lords under the Code. To protect the confidentiality of those reporting complaints, and in line with Parliament’s publication policy for statistics under the Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme, the exact numbers are only provided where they are ten or more.</p> more like this

The report contributes to the evidence base on modern slavery and we are taking the recommendations into consideration.</p><p>The decision to arrest is ultimately an operational decision; to support this decision making, the Government has invested in police training and awareness as part of the £11.6m Modern Slavery Police Transformation Programme investment so that officers are aware of the signs and indicators of victims encountered in the course of police duties, even if this is in relation to enforcement of drug legislation, for example. The s45 statutory defence introduced by the Modern Slavery Act 2015 provides further protection for victims forced to commit crimes such as cannabis cultivation.</p> more like this
