star 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

We will not tolerate a practice that can cause extreme and lifelong physical and psychological suffering to women and girls.</p><p>In 2014/15, the Home Office provided over £100,000 to community organisations through the FGM Community Engagement Initiative. The fund was open to organisations across the UK to bid for up to £10,000 to carry out community work to raise awareness of FGM.</p><p>The 12 projects included work to build the confidence of women and communities to speak out against FGM and raise awareness of the potential health, social and cultural implications.</p><p>The evaluations show that nearly 6,000 people were engaged in a variety of activities designed to raise awareness about FGM and strengthen the voices of communities.

This is more than any other EU Member State. In addition, we continue to fund via the UNHCR asylum expertise to the Greek asylum system and support a programme of assisted voluntary return of illegal migrants.</p><p>We also support the European Commission’s proposals for 'Hot Spot' screening centres. These centres will help ensure that migrants are registered and fingerprinted at pressure points on the EU external border and that refugees are identified and protected quickly, while those with no need of protection can be returned immediately. We are discussing with EASO and Frontex how best we can contribute.</p><p>We have created a multi-agency 90-strong team from the National Crime Agency (NCA), Border Force, Immigration Enforcement and the CPS to fight the criminal gangs that are exploiting vulnerable people and are working closely with Europol to strengthen its operation to tackle organised crime groups involved in smuggling people across sea and land routes. We are focusing on tracking vessels in the Mediterranean and bringing together intelligence from EU and Europol partners to target these criminals.</p><p>We continue to support Frontex operations in the Mediterranean by providing debriefing and nationality screening experts to Operations Triton and Poseidon. The UK has an outstanding offer of additional debriefing and nationality screening experts which was made to Frontex during August. We are currently awaiting directions from Frontex as to where this resource may best be utilised.</p><p>The UK is excluded from the Frontex Regulation on Schengen-building grounds. Therefore our officers participate in Frontex joint operations and other activities with the agreement of the Management Board on a case-by-case basis in an observational/advisory role.</p>
