answer text We recognise and welcome the substantial and continued contribution made by Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states to the humanitarian aid response for Syria and the large numbers of Syrians already in the Gulf. The Gulf states are now home to almost one million Syrians, and Gulf states have pledged more than $3 billion in humanitarian assistance.

answer text <p>The UK strongly welcomes the plan agreed between the EU and Turkey to end irregular migration from Turkey to the EU. For the first time, we have a plan that breaks the business model of the people smugglers by cutting the link between getting in a boat and getting settlement in Europe. The numbers of migrants arriving on Greek islands has significantly reduced since this deal came into effect and it is making a genuine difference to managing the flows of migration; preventing people from dying in attempting the crossing or putting themselves in the hands of smugglers.</p><p>The UK takes the view that Turkey offers sufficient protection, in its law and its practice, to return people there. Turkey is already hosting over 2.7 million Syrian refugees and has granted them access to healthcare, education and the labour market. We are also pleased to note that, since the 18 March EU-Turkey migration deal, Turkey has reached agreements with the European Commission and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in providing them with access to the Düziçi Camp and Kirklareli Removal Centre. The UK continues to work with Turkey to deliver further improvements to their immigration and asylum services.</p>

answer text <p>In the UN Security Council, we have sought to address the humanitarian situation inside Syria, calling for an end to the fighting and full access for humanitarian aid. At the UN, we have worked with partners to help Syrian refugees, including in September 2016 when we co-hosted a meeting in the margins of the General Assembly to review progress on implementation of the February conference. The UK is at the forefront of the humanitarian response to the Syria crisis, including support for Syrian refugees. We have committed £2.3 billion in response to the Syrian crisis, of which £1.1 billion is for countries neighbouring Syria. This money is to meet the needs of refugees, help host communities and enable Syrian refugees to remain in the region. In February 2016, the UK co-hosted the Supporting Syria and the Region Conference, which raised over $12 billion in pledges, and included a focus on education and employment opportunities for refugees in the region.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The government has undertaken a significant amount of work to assess the economic impacts of both approaches highlighted in the recent Future Customs Arrangements paper, but parliament has voted not to disclose material that could damage the United Kingdom’s position in its negotiations with the European Union. When assessing all options for the UK’s future relationship with the EU, the government will be guided by what delivers the greatest economic advantage to the UK.</p><p>The precise nature of a new streamlined customs arrangement, including implementation time, will be determined through negotiations. As set out in the Government's paper in August, the government believes that a model of close association with the EU Customs Union for a time-limited interim period would help both sides to minimise unnecessary disruption and allow for a smooth and orderly transition to any new arrangement.</p><p> </p> more like this
