unstar this property answer text Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) staff in the UK do not use a car with dedicated driver. FCO Services has a small pool of vehicles and security cleared drivers which are used mainly for transporting Queen's Messengers, diplomatic bags and other classified material. As part of a long-standing arrangement, the Permanent Under-Secretary and other senior officials are able to draw on this pool for official and operationally necessary travel. The FCO does make use of a taxi service provider which FCO staff are entitled to use according to strict policy rules governing the use of taxis for official journeys. FCO policy states that ‘for duty travel staff should use the most efficient means of transport; the use of taxis for official business should be avoided unless it is absolutely necessary, usually when there is no other means of public transport to the destination, or there is a need to transport bulky official materials (not personal luggage) to or from a course, seminar or meeting. FCO Staff are entitled to use a taxi when it is considered the most efficient means of transport. Special Advisers are not entitled to us ethe FCO Services provided small car pool or the departmental taxi provision. The statistical information requested is not held centrally and can only be collated at disproportionate cost.

unstar this property answer text <p>Violations of Freedom of Expression, including the harassment, detention and extra judicial killing of journalists in Somalia, are a growing concern. In October 2016 Somalia was again ranked by the Committee to Protect Journalists as &quot;the worst place in the world to be a journalist&quot; citing the high numbers of journalists killed without convictions.</p><p>Somali authorities rarely investigate such violations or prosecute perpetrators. This is due to a lack of capacity to monitor and gather information, and also an insufficient legislative framework to investigate and prosecute violations when they occur. This reinforces a culture of impunity.</p><p>The UK regularly expresses concerns at a senior level with the Federal Government of Somalia about restrictions to Freedom of Expression, Association and Assembly, and the need to investigate and prosecute cases of abuse.</p><p>Through our Conflict, Stability and Security Fund we will continue to work with the Federal Government of Somalia to strengthen the institutional and legal framework for compliance with international human rights standards and treaties, and the capacity to uphold these.</p>
