star this property answer text <p>This Government works to protect and promote pluralistic values – including freedom of religion and belief - through its Counter-Extremism Strategy. Faith communities are crucial to tackling hatred and intolerance. Through our ‘Building a Stronger Britain Together’ programme we are supporting partners across the country to challenge extremism – including faith groups.</p><p>Protecting freedom of religion and belief is also central to the UN Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism and cuts across two of the four pillars of the UN Global CT Strategy: addressing the conditions conducive to the spread of terrorism, and ensuring respect for human rights for all and the rule of law as the fundamental basis for the fight against terrorism.</p><p>The new Commission for Countering Extremism will also support our faith communities in stamping out extremism and promoting our fundamental values.</p> more like this

The Bill will ensure that if abusive behaviour involves a child, then the court can hand down a sentence that reflects the devastating life-long impact that abuse can have on a child.</p><p>The Bill is part of a programme of work designed to transform our approach to domestic violence and ensure that victims have the confidence to come forward and report their experiences, safe in the knowledge that the state and justice system will do everything it can to both support them and their children, and pursue their abuser.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK has a long and proud tradition of providing a safe haven to those who genuinely need our protection. We do not remove asylum seekers. Those who are found not to need protection are refused but have a right of appeal to the independent courts. Once appeals rights are exhausted they are required to leave the UK.</p><p>The term 'deportation' refers to returns which are enforced following either a criminal conviction in the UK (or overseas) which has resulted in a custodial sentence of 12 months or more, or where it is considered that removal of an individual is conducive to the public good due to their criminality.</p><p>Those individuals who do not need protection are expected to return home if their asylum claim is refused and dismissed on appeal. All asylum and human rights claims are carefully considered on their individual merits in accordance with the UK’s obligations under the 1951 United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and the European Convention on Human Rights.</p><p>Where a decision has been made that a person does not require international protection, and there are no remaining rights of appeal or obstacles to their return, the Home Office expects unsuccessful asylum seekers to return voluntarily to their home country. The Home Office’s preferred option is for those who have no legal basis to remain in the UK to leave voluntarily and we offer assistance to those who choose to do so by actively promoting the Home Office Voluntary Return Service.</p><p>If an individual does not leave the UK voluntarily, then it may become necessary to enforce their removal. The Home Office closely monitors developments in all countries of return and takes decisions on a case-by-case basis in the light of international obligations and the latest available country information. The Home Office only enforces removal when it and the courts conclude that it is safe to do so, with a safe route of return. Enforced removals are carried out in the most sensitive way possible, treating those being removed with respect and courtesy.</p>

The Government is taking action against all forms of terrorism and extremism, including the major threat from Islamist violent extremism. Our response includes the Counter Extremism strategy, the new Commission for Countering Extremism, and the hate crime action plan.</p><p>We are also reviewing our Counter Terrorism strategy to ensure we have all the powers and measures we need to keep our communities safe. In 2015, the Chancellor announced that cross-government spending on Counter-Terrorism would be increased by 30% - increasing CT spending from the protected £11.7bn over five years to £15.1bn over the same period. We have dedicated funding to help protect places of worship who have been subject or vulnerable to a hate crime.</p> more like this
