We believe that civil society organisations and individuals should have the freedom to express their opinions, including where they challenge government policy. This includes Human Rights Defenders – those people that seek to promote universal human rights for their fellow citizens. We support them as a matter of principle, provided they do not advocate or use violent means.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The treatment of all British-Iranians detained in Iran, including Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe is a priority for the Government. We urgently raise these cases with the Iranian Government at every opportunity. On 14 January, the Foreign Secretary summoned the Iranian Ambassdor to the UK. The Foreign Secretary called for Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe to be immediately given the healthcare she requires and for her and other British-Iranian dual nationals to be released. The Iranian authorities have since confirmed that access to external medical treatment will be permitted. We will continue to raise Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe's case, as well as our other consular cases, with the Iranian Government at every opportunity, including requesting consular access, and will continue to take action in line with what we believe will produce the best outcomes in their cases. We are only able to provide consular support to British nationals, including dual nationals, and to otherwise un-represented EU and Commonwealth nationals. Mrs Mohammadi as she holds Iranian nationality only, is not eligible for consular assistance.</p>

answer text <p>As I made clear in my statement of 27 December we are disappointed that Israel plans to expropriate additional West Bank territory by pressing forward with plans to construct 2,800 units. We regularly call on Israel to halt such counterproductive activity and instead urgently commit to creating a better environment for a just and lasting peace. Such settlements are illegal under international law and undermine the physical viability of the two-state solution.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

The relief is provided to support telecom companies as they invest in their fibre network and, therefore, is not available on existing fibre constructed before 1 April 2017.</p> more like this

answer text <p>On 28 November 2018, the government published a robust assessment of how exiting the EU may affect the UK economy in the long-run, detailing the effects on GDP, GDP per capita, exports and imports across four scenarios. This analysis is available on gov.uk.</p><p> </p><p>While the analysis does not seek to assess the effect of non-tariff barriers on consumer prices specifically, the lower GDP in the modelled no deal scenario compared to today's arrangements reflects the combined impact of trade frictions, including non-tariff barriers, on households' purchasing power as well as on firms' gross output and their productivity. The White Paper scenario would deliver significantly higher economic output compared to no deal.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Border Inspection Posts (BIPs) are commercial ventures set up by ports and airports which are inspected and approved for operation by the relevant Competent Authority and the Commission. Any BIPs at ports with regular ferry services to the UK would be approved by the Competent Authority of that EU Member State, not the Secretary of State.</p><p>As explained in the Technical Notice on <em>“Importing animals and animal products if there’s no Brexit deal”, </em>consignments originating in the EU will not initially be required to enter the UK through a BIP. For this reason we are not anticipating a significant increase in demand for BIPs at UK ports receiving ferries coming from the EU and have not received any applications for approvals of new BIPs.</p><p>A full list of current BIP facilities across the EU can be found here: <a href="https://ec.europa.eu/food/animals/vet-border-control/bip-contacts_en" target="_blank">https://ec.europa.eu/food/animals/vet-border-control/bip-contacts_en</a></p>
