star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The UK is helping to support Pakistan’s efforts to increase revenue collection through a range of measures, including through expertise from HM Revenue and Customs. The Government of Pakistan has already made progress including removing tax exemptions worth 0.34% of GDP and publishing a directory of all taxpayers. It published its second federal budget on 3 June which included further emphasis on increasing revenue from 9% to 15% of GDP by 2018, through new measures to widen the tax net and phase out exemptions. Through these the government aims to raise additional revenue of over $2.2 billion in 2014/15.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>It has also committed to increase the share of GDP spent on education from 2% to 4% by 2018. This will help to get some of the estimated 12 million out-of-school children across the country into education.</p><p> </p> more like this

The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon.

star this property answer text <p>The Government of Pakistan’s stated objective for military operations in North Waziristan is to remove all militant groups and dismantle terrorist infrastructure. In its most recent public report, provided on 16 July, the Pakistan army report 447 insurgents killed, 32 surrendered, as well as destruction of 88 hideouts, 11 Improvised Explosive Device factories and 11 tons of explosive. The Pakistan government claim 992,000 people have been registered as displaced and have allocated 4.5 billion Pakistan rupees in assistance. It is for the Government of Pakistan to determine how to tackle the prolonged and deadly insurgency they face. The UK supports Pakistan as it tackles terrorism and violent extremism, and we will stand together to tackle terrorism and the extremism that sustains it. We expect all concerned to act in accordance with international law and take all feasible precautions to avoid civilian casualties.</p><p> </p> more like this
