unstar this property answer text <p>The detail of the UK’s association to the EU Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation &amp; restriction of Chemicals programme after the UK leaves the EU is part of ongoing negotiations. The UK and the EU have a mutual interest in maintaining our integrated chemical supply chains as the chemicals industry is an economically significant sector in both regions, and it underpins key downstream sectors including automotive, aerospace, construction and pharmaceuticals. In the White Paper on our future relationship with the European Union published in July, the UK has proposed that chemicals are part of a UK-EU free trade area on goods, with continued UK participation in the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) underpinning this arrangement. This proposal is part of ongoing negotiation.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government published its Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review (FTIR) in July 2018, setting out its strategy for delivering its target for a nationwide full fibre broadband network by 2033. On 29 October, DCMS published two of the consultations promised in the FTIR, on new legislation to reform existing access agreement arrangements to provide a right of entry for communication providers in cases of absentee landlords, and to ensure full fibre connections to new build developments. At Budget, the Government also announced £200m from the National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF) to further support the deployment of full fibre to the commercially most difficult to reach premises. In its October Connected Nations report, Ofcom confirmed that full fibre coverage had reached 1.4 million premises in May 2018, up from less than 900,000 premises in May 2017. Commitments to full fibre rollout from industry have also continued, for example with CityFibre recently announcing a £2.5 billion investment plan to expand its full fibre network to 5 million homes.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Since launching the Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative (PSVI) in 2012, the UK has continued to lead global efforts to end the horror of sexual violence in conflict, and we have committed over £44 million in UK funding across 26 countries. The Ministry of Defence has trained 17,000 000 national and international police and military personnel, including peacekeepers, on sexual and gender-based violence issues, including in Kenya, Nigeria, DRC, Malawi and Iraq. The UK’s PSVI Team of Experts has been deployed over 90 times, to build the capacity of partner governments, the UN and NGOs. We have launched the first and second editions of the International Protocol on the Documentation and Investigation of Sexual Violence in Conflict, and employed the Protocol to build the capacity of governments, judiciary, police, military and civil society to gather evidence of sexual violence in conflict and strengthen prosecutions. It has also been used by many NGOs and international organisations such as the ICC and UN OHCHR. To help tackle the stigma of sexual violence, we launched the ‘Principles for Global Action: preventing and addressing stigma associated with conflict-related sexual violence’ at the UN General Assembly in September 2017. These principles have been used by organisations including the UN, for example as part of the Stigma Alleviation Program in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The UK will host a PSVI International Conference in November 2019 to galvanise the world into further action, and demonstrate the UK’s continued global leadership on tackling sexual violence in conflict.</p>
