The education of girls continues to be a priority for UK development assistance in Pakistan. Under the Punjab Education Sector Programme, we are working with a local partner organisation to reintegrate young and adolescent girls who have left school prematurely back into mainstream schools or vocational education. Within less than a year, over 4000 girls have benefitted from this intervention so far.</p><p>The British Government supports other programmes designed to improve human rights and opportunities for women, religious minorities and marginalised groups. For example, the Department for International Development's AAWAZ II programme works with communities to promote rights of children, women, youth and religious minorities, protect them from exploitation, and prevent discrimination and intolerance.

We are unable to substantiate these numbers given the challenges of obtaining precise data in north east Nigeria. Boko Haram is a terrorist organisation with a vile ideology and history of attacking civilians, both Christian and Muslim. The majority of Boko Haram's victims have been Muslims. The UK condemns attacks on civilians, including on the basis of their religious belief. The Foreign Secretary discussed the issue of freedom of religious belief and UK support to combat extremists with the Nigerian Vice President during his visit to Nigeria in April. He also met with a wide range of religious leaders to discuss how the UK can support their work to promote interfaith dialogue and long-term peace, and visited North East Nigeria.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to preserving the UK’s high standards of biosecurity and animal welfare. The EU Pet Travel Scheme requires all pets travelling to Great Britain on approved routes to be declared. 100% of these are then subject to documentary and identity checks. Documentary checks for cats include a passport, signed by an Official Veterinarian in the country of origin, certifying that the cat has been vaccinated against rabies.</p><p>Since 2012, when the UK harmonised with the EU Pet Travel Scheme, we have no longer required tick or tapeworm treatment for cats or kittens. Risk assessments have been undertaken, both before harmonisation and since, which supported the removal of these requirements. As such, we have no plans to change the import requirements for pet cats. However, we continue to monitor the disease situation and will undertake a further formal risk assessment if evidence indicates that one is warranted.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to preserving the UK’s high standards of biosecurity and animal welfare. The EU Pet Travel Scheme requires all pets travelling to Great Britain on approved routes to be declared. 100% of these are then subject to documentary and identity checks. All commercial EU consignments of dogs or cats receive documentary checks on entry and the Animal and Plant Health Agency conducts further risk based checks away from the border. We have increased resourcing at major UK ports to detect smuggled animals and continue to work collaboratively with Border Force, sharing intelligence in order to disrupt illegal imports.</p><p>On 13 May this year a statutory instrument[1] was laid in Parliament which will introduce a ban on commercial third party sales of puppies and kittens in England. This decision followed a public consultation which received over 6,500 responses, 96% of which supported the proposal. The ban itself is planned to come into force on 6 April 2020 and, once in place, anyone seeking to buy or adopt a kitten will have to deal directly with the breeder or with one of the UK’s many animal rehoming centres. Restricting the sale of kittens to licensed breeders has the potential to help deter people motivated to illegally import kittens for the purpose of financial gain.</p><p>[1] <a href="https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukdsi/2019/9780111186954" target="_blank">The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2019</a></p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) published an online only patient decision aid for inhalers used in the treatment of asthma on 8 April 2019.</p><p>The purpose of this aid is to help people with asthma and their healthcare professional to discuss the different inhaler devices that are available to treat their condition and where appropriate, to consider the environmental impact of the inhaler. The patient decision aid has been downloaded over 1,500 times since its publication.</p><p>To encourage use of the decision aid, NICE is contributing to an expert working group on sustainable inhalers led by the Sustainable Development Unit which is actively promoting this work. The working group members include clinicians and patient organisations, such as Asthma UK and the British Lung Foundation. NICE has also shared the patient decision aid through its network of NICE associates - a network of National Health Service professionals who support implementation of NICE guidance across the NHS.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We have made no such assessment on the proportion of the National Health Service carbon footprint made by hydrofluorocarbon in metred dose inhalers or of the impact of the use of metred dose inhalers containing hydrofluorocarbons in releasing greenhouse gases. However, we are informed by NHS England that the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory calculated the carbon emissions from inhalers in England as 850,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents. This is equivalent to approximately 4% of the entire carbon footprint of the NHS in England.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We understand 203 Palestinian children were in Israeli military detention at the end of December 2018. It remains our assessment that transfer of Palestinian child and adult detainees to prisons inside Israel is in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention. We continue to make representations to the Israeli authorities at Ministerial and senior official level outlining our concerns around Israel’s treatment of Palestinian children in Israeli detention. Most recently officials at our Embassy in Tel Aviv raised our concerns with the Israeli authorities on 18 March.</p> more like this
