answer text <p>Unless a valid exemption has been declared the statutory applicable charge of £8.80 is payable for each prescription item, such as a quantity of a drug, dispensed in the community in England. The Government has no plans to change this position in respect of combination packs of hormone replacement therapy medication comprised of multiple drugs. Accordingly, no recent discussions about this matter have taken place at Cabinet level.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Over 500 migrants, the majority of whom are Iranian nationals, attempted to travel to the UK on small vessels in 2018. The vast majority of those attempts were made in the last three months of the year.</p><p>All asylum claims made in the UK are processed, managed and decided in line with Home Office policy, guidance and relevant case law and legislation. This supports an efficient and effective asylum process for the UK and ensures that asylum claims are handled in a manner that is appropriate to the individual, including ensuring any reasonable adjustments and safe-guarding needs are considered.</p><p>All asylum claimants must be treated with dignity and fairness regardless of their age, disability, ethnicity, nationality, race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or belief.</p><p>An asylum claim will be registered where an individual makes a particularised protection claim for the first time, in person and in their own right. That does not mean that the UK will always be responsible for making a substantive decision.</p><p>As part of that process, there is a need to assess whether what a person is saying amounts to a protection claim and if so, whether the claim is admissible to the decision-making process. Inadmissibility is a concept by which the Home Office can decline to consider an asylum claim because the individual already enjoys sufficient protection in another country, or another country is responsible for considering the claim.</p><p>We are unable to state how many asylum seekers arriving on the Kent coast since 1 October 2018 have had their claims registered and processed using standard procedures, as we do not comment on the status of cases once they have claimed asylum.</p>

answer text <p>The NHS Long Term Plan sets an ambition for three out of four cancers to be diagnosed at an early stage by 2028, compared to around one in two currently. This ambition applies to all cancers, including pancreatic cancer, not just the 10 currently in the Public Health Outcomes Framework early diagnosis metric. NHS England is keen to work with the charities representing some of the cancers not currently included in this metric on how best to measure progress towards the ambition moving forwards.</p> more like this

answer text <p>HM Passport Office (HMPO) has an ambitious transformation plan to increase digital applications, helping to reduce operational expenditure by removing paper and customer errors from the process.</p><p>In June 2016, HMPO launched its first fully digital online application service for adults renewing their passport. This launch was supported by no cost communications activity, including PR and stakeholder engagement. Last financial year (2017/18) a small scale paid search campaign, costing £9,665, was trialled to encourage customers to use the online application channel. In this financial year (2018/19) a marketing campaign, costing £536,639.04, was delivered via radio and digital advertising.</p><p>A re-launch of the marketing campaign in 2019/20 has been planned, forecast at £1m. This activity is dependent on the outcome of the EU Exit withdrawal agreement.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Reports of the number of detainees, deaths and injuries vary. On 12 January the Government of Sudan reported that 24 deaths had occurred. Activist groups and Non-Governmental Organisations assess the number to be considerably higher. We are unable to verify these figures independently, but we continue to express our deep concern at the current situation, both bilaterally and as part of the Troika (with the USA and Norway). We are urging the Government of Sudan to respect the Sudanese people's right to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, and to ensure those responsible for the deaths of protestors are held to account. We expect political activists, human rights defenders, journalists and others who are being detained without charge or trial to be released immediately, and for all detainees to be treated in accordance with international standards. We continue to monitor the situation closely.</p> more like this
