unstar this property answer text <p>The Azure card is issued to destitute failed asylum seekers who require support because they are temporarily unable to leave the United Kingdom and can be used at most of the main supermarket chains to purchase food and other essential items. The performance of the card is kept under regular review and the views of reputable partners such as the Red Cross are carefully considered but the Government is satisfied that it is an effective way of ensuring the individuals are able to meet their essential living needs and not left destitute.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK is working with other EU Member States to address the migration pressures in the Mediterranean described in the report, in particular through the EU’s Task Force Mediterranean. This was discussed most recently at the JHA Council on 9 October. We believe it is important to find solutions which address the root causes and do not encourage even greater numbers of people to undertake dangerous journeys. Efforts under the Task Force Mediterranean should therefore be primarily focused on improving border security and asylum processes in Member States, disrupting the activities of people smugglers and putting in place stronger cooperation on migration issues with source and transit countries. The Government does not however support ‘responsibility-sharing’ if that means the relocation of asylum seekers from the Member State in which they first arrive to other EU countries.</p> more like this

This inspection reviews each force and covers the following issues: the progress the force has made managing professional and personal relationships with integrity and transparency; the progress the force has made communicating and embedding ethical behaviour to all staff; how well the force proactively looks for and investigate misconduct and unprofessional behaviour; and how well do forces prevent, identify, and investigate corruption.</p><p> </p><p>The PEEL assessment for 2014/15 will be published on 27 November 2014.</p><p> </p>
