The primary objective of the Department when making a decision to close a school is to ensure the best possible educational outcomes for pupils and to secure value for money for the taxpayer. The Department would expect the responsible body to meet any outstanding costs or debts. Where this is not possible, the Department would consider providing financial support if reasonable to do so.</p> more like this

As part of the Government's support for UN reform, we want to ensure that there are robust systems in place to deal with such complaints. The UK hosted the UN Peacekeeping Defence Ministerial in London in September 2016, which called for improvements in the '3Ps' of peacekeeping; better planning, pledges and performance, and specifically that all UN personnel deployed in UN peacekeeping operations be committed to the highest standards of conduct.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Regulations are already in place prohibiting the misuse of drones and offences exist in order to deter and, if necessary, prosecute operators for malicious or negligent use. Under the Air Navigation Order 2016, it is an offence to endanger an aircraft and if convicted, a person can face a prison sentence of up to 5 years.</p><p> </p><p>The Government takes the safety risks of drones to aviation very seriously. We have already taken action on this by working with the Civil Aviation Authority and industry to raise awareness of the rules amongst drone operators and the general public. The Government intends to introduce further measures once we have fully analysed the evidence presented through our consultation process. We are exploring options, such as improving deterrents for the misuse of drones and measures to improve communication to drone users of ‘no drone flying zones’. The Government response to the consultation will be published in the near future.</p> more like this
