However, police forces in England and Wales provide the Home Office with data on the number of offences recorded of Assault or assault by beating of a constable or emergency worker that resulted in a charge.</p><p>Between 13 November 2018 to 31 December 2018, there were 947 offences recorded under the Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Act 2018 that resulted in a charge. However, this provides an incomplete count of all individuals charged under this Act because some offences will result in more than one offender being charged and more serious incidents may result in a higher charge such as Grievous Bodily Harm.</p><p>The Home Office does not hold data on whether or not the incident occurred in connection with the services provided by the NHS.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK allocation from the Fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived (FEAD) was €3.94m for the 2014-20 period. FEAD operates on a funding year which differs from the standard financial year; the FEAD year runs 1st January to 31st December, and funding is allocated for the full 7-year programme. There is not a set amount allocated for each financial year, so the specific information in the question on allocation of funds for the year 2017 and 2018 is not available.</p><p>The funding information for the period 2014-20 is set out in detail at sections 1-7 in the published Explanatory Memorandum dated 23rd January 2018, reference 14699/18 COM (18)742, which is available at: <a href="http://europeanmemoranda.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/files/2019/01/EM_14699_18.pdf" target="_blank">http://europeanmemoranda.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/files/2019/01/EM_14699_18.pdf</a></p> more like this

They have confirmed they will develop public registers of company beneficial ownership once it has been established as a global norm.</p><p>In October 2018 the UK Government launched an international beneficial ownership transparency campaign to shift global norms by encouraging and supporting more countries to implement free to access and publicly available company beneficial ownership registers by 2023. In line with this campaign, the UK Government will encourage the Crown Dependencies to voluntarily introduce measures to improve the transparency of their company ownership.</p><p>Similarly, the Overseas Territories are self-governing jurisdictions. However, in accordance with the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018, the UK Government will prepare an Order in Council by the end of 2020 requiring all Overseas Territories to have fully functioning publicly accessible registers in place by the end of 2023. The UK Government will work consensually with the Overseas Territories on introducing publicly accessible registers, which includes through technical workshops.</p>
