star this property answer text <p>The Home Secretary has been clear: the far right has absolutely no place in Britain. The British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudiced rhetoric of the far right, which is the antithesis of the values that this country represents: decency, tolerance and respect.</p><p>Through CONTEST and the Counter-Extremism Strategy, we’re dealing with the threat of right-wing terrorism and the wider harms caused by the far right, including community tensions, hate crime and public order issues. This is about keeping our communities safe and secure. We have also been discussing the risk posed by right wing terrorism with our international partners.</p><p>The Government proscribed National Action as a terrorist organisation in December 2016. We’ve also proscribed Scottish Dawn and NS131 as aliases of National Action.</p><p>“Terrorism” is defined in Section 1 of the Terrorism Act 2000. Our counter terrorism strategy, CONTEST, works to reduce the risk of all forms of terrorism, regardless of ideology.</p>

CVA’s are a valuable part of the restructuring framework. Following this consultation, Government announced it will strengthen the powers available to insolvency practitioners to take recovery action where value has been extracted from a company prior to its insolvency, thereby increasing the protections already available to creditors. These proposals will be introduced when parliamentary time permits.</p> more like this

A key pillar of realising this commitment is our ambition to deliver 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020s.</p><p>To further ensure a smooth transition, we have implemented legislation which will mean that on Day 1 after exit, the UK’s regulatory requirements on construction products will be the same as the EU’s requirements. In the event of a no-deal scenario, we will continue to recognise EU product requirements as valid for sale on the UK market for a time limited period after we leave the EU.</p>

We welcome the IRMCT Appeals Chamber's decision in the Karadžić Appeals Judgement which set aside the sentence of 40 years and imposed on Karadžić a sentence of life imprisonment, owing to the heinous crimes he committed. The decision is one made by competent judges who apply the law to the facts.</p><p>The International Criminal Court (ICC), on the other hand, is a permanent International Criminal Tribunal court, established by a Treaty, the Rome Statute.
