star this property answer text <p>​We take any allegations relating to the arrest of medics treating protesters at demonstrations in Hong Kong extremely seriously. We expect the Hong Kong authorities to abide by international humanitarian norms and laws. We continue to be concerned about the situation in Hong Kong and have called consistently for a robust, independent inquiry into recent events as a step towards resolution of the situation. The only way to resolve this impasse is through meaningful and effective political dialogue. We will continue to raise our concerns with the Hong Kong SAR Government and the authorities in Beijing.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Police have powers under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 and Common Law to seize and retain property that is believed to be evidence of an offence.</p><p>Once seized, the property may be retained for no longer than is necessary for use as evidence at a trial, for forensic examination or for investigation in connection with an offence or to establish the rightful owner of the property. To ensure the property is admissible as evidence, police need to keep an accurate record of its seizure and retention and safe keeping to establish the chain of evidence.</p><p>Owners may obtain independent legal advice if they wish to make a claim against police for damage to their property. Free advice can be sought from a Law Centre or Citizens Advice (CA). If a person wishes to claim property seized by the police, they may also apply to a magistrate’s court under the Police (Property) Act 1897 for its possession.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The licensing of private hire vehicles, operators and drivers is the responsibility of local licensing authorities, including Transport for London. The Department for Transport issues Best Practice Guidance to assist with this but it remains a licensing authority’s responsibility to enforce its licensing conditions. Driving without a valid driving licence or valid insurance are both offences, for which penalties, including fines and points on a licence, are ultimately a matter for the courts. Uber drivers have the same tax liability as any other self-employed person.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We, along with the EU and other members of the international community, regularly discuss human rights with the Bruneian authorities. During Brunei's Universal Periodic Review at the UN Human Rights Council on 2 May, we called on Brunei to lift its state of emergency, to establish a national human rights institution and to ensure that the implementation of their new sharia criminal code was in line with international human rights standards. This includes the Commonwealth Charter which commits members to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. I discussed this with His Majesty The Sultan, and other government figures during a visit to Brunei in April. The Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my Rt Hon Friend the Member for East Devon also raised our concerns with Brunei's Deputy Foreign Minister Pehin Kunis on 12 June. The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Ministry of Justice, my hon. Friend the Member for North West Cambridgeshire (Mr Vara), raised this with the Bruneian Attorney General at the Commonwealth Law Ministers meeting on 6 May. The Secretary of State for Health, my Rt Hon Friend the Member for South West Surrey (Mr Hunt), discussed this with his opposite number at a Commonwealth Health Ministers' meeting on 18 May 2014.</p>
