star this property answer text <p>The shipping industry is understandably concerned about recent regional tensions and attacks on international shipping in the Persian Gulf. These events culminated in Iran's illegal seizure of the Stena Impero, a UK-flagged tanker, on 19 July.</p><p>It is vital to uphold the principle of freedom of navigation and ensure that merchant shipping can pass through the Gulf safely. That begins with clear information flows between Government and the shipping industry. The Department for Transport (DfT) regularly reviews threats and reporting worldwide and issues the most up to date advice available to operators to assist with their risk assessments, to enable their safety while travelling overseas.</p><p>In late July, following the illegal seizure of the Stena Impero, the Royal Navy began to accompany British-flagged ships in the region to provide reassurance to the shipping industry. In parallel, we have been talking to allies and partners about the threat to international shipping in the region. On 5 August, the Government announced its decision to join an international maritime security construct in the Gulf, focused on freedom of navigation and restoring safe passage for shipping. The mission involves the Royal Navy working with international partners to accompany merchant vessels through the Strait of Hormuz, building on existing cooperation which has seen Royal Navy vessels accompany 50 merchant ships through the Strait since 24 July.</p><p>Our participation in this construct is focused entirely on the issue of reassuring the shipping industry and deterring further attacks. The Government has not changed its wider policy towards Iran. We remain committed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which is the best way to prevent a nuclear armed Iran. We are not part of the US maximum pressure campaign and have no wish to escalate tensions with Iran, but we also have to ensure that international law and rules are upheld and respected.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are working to transition existing EU trade agreements, including CETA, into bilateral deals as the UK leaves the EU. We continue to engage Canada to seek to achieve this at the earliest opportunity, and both sides are committed to a strong trading relationship moving forwards.</p><p> </p><p>If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the UK will implement a temporary tariff which aims to minimise costs to business and mitigate price impacts on consumers. However, this will be temporary, applying for up to 12 months. It is not the basis for a long-term preferential trading relationship - transition of CETA remains the best foundation for the UK’s future trading relationship with Canada.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The security and resilience of the UK's telecoms network is of paramount importance. Section 105a of the Communications Act 2003 requires telecoms operators to have appropriate measures in place to manage risks to the security of networks and services. The 5G Testbeds and Trials Programme has allocated £10 million to create capabilities where the security of 5G networks can be tested and proven, working with the National Cyber Security Centre.</p><p> </p><p>Furthermore, the Government has recently announced a strengthened security framework for 5G infrastructure following a thorough, evidence-based review of the 5G supply chain, which can be found here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/819469/CCS001_CCS0719559014-001_Telecoms_Security_and_Resilience_Accessible.pdf. This raises the security bar through new, strengthened security requirements that will ensure telecoms providers meet new challenges as 5G technology evolves. It also sets out plans for a strengthened legislative and regulatory framework to enforce these requirements.</p>
