unstar this property answer text <p>The Government has developed a comprehensive package of police integrity reforms following two independent reviews and public consultations, and extensive consultation with policing stakeholders. An impact assessment was published during the passage of the Policing and Crime Act 2017.</p><p>Following the introduction of public misconduct hearings in public, with legally qualified chairs (2015), the Government has extended the police discipline system to former officers and introduced the police barred list (December 2017). In January 2018, reforms to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) were implemented, streamlining decision-making and creating the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC). Investigation times have fallen since these changes were introduced.</p><p>The next phase of reforms will build on these changes, overhauling the police complaints and discipline systems. Changes to simplify processes, for example when making decisions on a case to answer, will make the system more efficient and the police and IOPC will be required to provide a written explanation if an investigation goes beyond 12 months and set out next steps. The police discipline system is being reformed to make it more transparent, including requiring more information to be provided to officers under investigation, and focusing it more on conduct that would warrant a disciplinary sanction, establishing a more proportionate process for matters that fall below that threshold</p><p><br>These reforms will be introduced when Parliamentary time allows.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK is firmly committed to ending the recruitment and use of child soldiers and to protecting all children affected by armed conflict. As a permanent member of the UN Security Council (UNSC), we are using our membership to ensure that conflict-related child protection issues remain a key part of the Council discussions and to ensure that UN operations retain the necessary capacity to address all child protection issues, including the continued use of child soldiers in conflict zones.</p><p>For example, to mark the International Day against the Use of Child Soldiers (Red Hand Day) the UK took part in a UNSC Arria meeting on protecting children in shrinking humanitarian spaces. The UK called for better integration of the Children and Armed Conflict (CAAC) portfolio into UNSC country specific discussions and for all states to sign up to the key international commitments pertaining to ending the recruitment and use of children in conflict; the Paris Principles and Commitments; the Vancouver Principles; and the Optional Protocol on children in armed conflict. The UK also highlighted the importance of mainstreaming child protection in peacekeeping missions.</p><p>We will be participating in the annual CAAC debate in August and will continue to use our position on the UNSC to engage with the international community and advocate greater protection for children in armed conflict against all grave violations, including recruitment and use. As the Foreign and Commonwealth Minister of State responsible fpr Children and Armed Conflict, Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon champions this agenda and is committed to raising it's profile and driving progress across Government and internationally.</p><p><strong>Background</strong></p><p>The UK is an active member of the United Nations Working Group on Children and Armed Conflict (CAAC), which leads the international response to the issue of child soldiers and child protection. This includes pressing those parties to conflict, listed in the UN Secretary-General's annual report on CAAC, to enter into concrete action plans with the UN to verify and release any child soldiers associated with armed groups and forces and to prevent re-recruitment. The UK is the largest single financial contributor to the office of the UN Special Representative of the Secretary General (SRSG) for CAAC, contributing £800,000 in the last five years, and a member of the 'Global Coalition for Reintegration', a forum to generate new ideas for supporting reintegration programmes for children formerly associated with armed groups.</p><p> </p>
