star this property answer text <p>We routinely update our guidance to British businesses on the Overseas Business Risk website. We advise British businesses to bear in mind the British Government's view on the illegality of settlements under international law when considering their investments and activities in the region. It has long been our position that Israeli settlement activity is illegal and undermines the viability of two states for two peoples. Ultimately it is the decision of an individual or company whether to operate in settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, but the British Government neither encourages nor offers support to such activity.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) provides independent expert advice on the United Kingdom’s immunisation programme. As an independent committee, it is well placed to ensure the latest and most appropriate evidence has been considered on potential changes to scheduling within the vaccine programme. It bases its advice on review of a wide range of scientific and other evidence, including from the published literature, commissioned studies such as independent analyses of vaccine effectiveness and cost effectiveness.</p><p>The JCVI advised that a two-dose schedule for the infant pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) Prevenar13 is appropriate for the UK. Its advice takes into account the public health aspects of any potential change to the vaccination schedule, such as the potential impact on cases of infectious disease. The JCVI consulted relevant stakeholders on its proposed advice, between January and April 2018, to ensure that its advice reflects all the evidence.</p><p>The JCVI’s advice on the infant pneumococcal programme was given full consideration, including the potential public health implications, before a decision was made to implement it. The UK frequently adopts innovative immunisation schedules and we regularly change the vaccine schedule following the advice of our independent expert committee, as we are doing in this case.</p><p>The decision is based on the excellent effectiveness of the vaccine and years of high uptake, which has helped to provide protection to the rest of the population and has successfully controlled many types of pneumococcal disease in this country. The evidence shows that two doses will sustain the excellent results we have already seen. We are confident that the world-class disease surveillance system we have in this country means our expert committee can closely monitor the impact of this change. This is set out in the JCVI’s minutes which are attached.</p>

We remain deeply concerned about reports of discrimination against the Christian community and other religious minorities in Pakistan. We regularly raise our concerns about the misuse of the blasphemy laws with the government of Pakistan at a senior level.</p><p>I raised our concerns about Freedom of Religion or Belief and the protection of minority religious communities with Pakistan's Federal Minister for Human Rights, Dr Shireen Mazari, during my visit to Islamabad in February. The UK raised concerns about Freedom of Religion or Belief at Pakistan's UN Universal Periodic Review of human rights in November 2017. We urged Pakistan to strengthen the protection of minorities, including by establishing an independent National Commission for Minorities from all faith communities.</p><p>The UK remains firmly opposed to the death penalty in all circumstances. We have repeatedly called upon the Government of Pakistan to end capital punishment and, at a minimum, commit to publicly renewing the previously imposed moratorium on the death penalty.</p><p>We will continue to urge the Government of Pakistan to guarantee fully the rights of all Pakistani citizens, including religious minorities, and to honour its international obligations.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK is gravely concerned by the recent escalation of hostilities in Gaza. We wholly condemn rocket fire by Hamas and other militants. The then acting Minister of State for the Middle East and North Africa, the Rt Hon. Mark Field MP, spoke to UN MEPP Coordinator Mladenov on 8 May where he welcomed the Egyptian and UN brokered ceasefire. We urge the parties to make progress towards a long-term agreement to ensure a durable solution for Gaza. We are concerned by damage to infrastructure in Gaza and the impact this has on the civilian population. The UK is supporting up to 1 million Gazans by addressing critical water and sanitation needs through £2 million to UNICEF. We have also announced £2 million to the International Committee of the Red Cross for medicines and surgical supplies.</p> more like this
