star this property answer text <p>The Government is fully aware of the importance of molybdenum-99 and the reliance on this medical radioisotope for diagnostic procedures in the National Health Service. The United Kingdom’s ability to import medical isotopes from Europe and the rest of the world will not be affected by withdrawal from Euratom. It is in everyone’s interest to not disrupt the timely access of treatment to patients and to ensure that cross-border trade with the European Union and Euratom is as frictionless as possible.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department has categorised local authority children’s social care services as ‘systemic’ or ‘persistent’ failures since December 2015 when it introduced a tougher intervention regime. The following authorities have been subject to this new policy:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>LA</p></td><td><p>Systemic/Persistent</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Barnet</p></td><td><p>Systemic</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Bromley</p></td><td><p>Systemic</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Dudley</p></td><td><p>Systemic</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Kirklees</p></td><td><p>Systemic</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Norfolk</p></td><td><p>Persistent</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Reading</p></td><td><p>Systemic</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Sandwell</p></td><td><p>Persistent</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Sunderland</p></td><td><p>Systemic</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Torbay</p></td><td><p>Persistent</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Worcestershire</p></td><td><p>Persistent &amp; Systemic</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p>All of these authorities have been subject to the appointment of Commissioners, with the exception of Barnet where recruitment for a Commissioner has not yet concluded. These authorities retain accountability for the effective running of their children’s services. Commissioners do not run the services, but do make recommendations to the Secretary of State on whether operational control of services should be removed from the council. Where Ministers accept a recommendation that services should transfer to alternative delivery arrangements, such as a new Children’s Services Trust, Commissioners will oversee this process</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK supports the East African Community-led dialogue to find a peaceful solution to the crisis in Burundi. We continue to urge the Burundi government to engage with the East African Community.</p><p>At the recent Human Rights Council session on 20 June 2017, the UK called on the Burundi Government to end the violence and collaborate with the UN Commission of Inquiry on Burundi to ensure that individuals responsible for human rights abuses in Burundi are held to account. Our non-resident Ambassador and officials regularly visit for consultations with the Burundi Government; these discussions cover human rights and the importance of maintaining the principles of the 2000 Arusha Agreement, including the protection of minority groups in Burundi. In addition, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is implementing projects in Burundi focused on human rights, sexual and gender based violence and security.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is not funding any non-governmental organisations (NGO) to carry out Search and Rescue in the Mediterranean. NGO activities are co-ordinated by the official Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre in Italy, and all NGOs should operate in accordance with international law. It is the organised criminal networks who are exploiting vulnerable migrants and profiting from these dangerous journeys across the sea. That is why our priority is to tackle these smugglers.</p> more like this
