star this property answer text <p>Since the abduction of human rights defender Mr Itai Dzamara in March 2015, the UK has worked closely with international partners to raise awareness of his case and to put pressure on the Government of Zimbabwe to investigate it. We regularly raise Mr Dzamara’s disappearance in the course of our discussions with the Government of Zimbabwe. Following a number of statements in 2015, the EU Delegation to Zimbabwe released a further statement on 9 March, in agreement with EU Heads of Mission in Zimbabwe, marking the one year anniversary of Mr Dzamara’s disappearance and expressing its deep disappointment at the lack of progress in this case. We urge the Government of Zimbabwe to take effective steps to prevent the disappearance of human rights defenders and other activists and to investigate existing cases.</p><p>The UK is not a signatory to the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance and therefore has not made representations to the Government of Zimbabwe to ratify it. However, there is an existing UK framework which protects human rights, prevents arbitrary arrests and holds national security organisations to account.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In February we allocated £1 million from the Government’s Global Challenges Research Fund to help urgently tackle the Zika virus; the Medical Research Council (MRC) received over 100 applications for support through its Rapid Response Initiative. To meet this demand, in March we committed up to an additional £2 million, with a further £1 million from the Wellcome Trust, bringing the total that was available up to a maximum of £4 million of funding.</p><p>Today, the MRC has announced that it has allocated c. £3.2 million of this funding to tackle the emerging and unknown threats of this virus. Our commitment to protect the science budget in real terms to the end of the Parliament means we can react quickly to help tackle these life-threatening global challenges.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is the responsibility of local authorities to decide how to allocate funding for youth services according to local need, through the existing statutory duty (Education Act 2006, Section 507B). Government launched the Delivering Differently for Young People Programme to offer practical support to local authorities in exploring innovative and sustainable models for delivering youth services. Government continues to support the Centre for Youth Impact to work with youth organisations to undertake research to measure impact and demonstrate value to funders and commissioners. We are also committed to expanding National Citizen Service, which many youth sector organisations help to deliver. Government is taking new steps to encourage and enable social action. This includes a further £15m investment in the next phase of the Centre for Social Action. We want social action to become a lifelong habit.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The proportion of 16 to 17 year old offenders who were found to have been convicted of committing a second knife offence and received the mandatory four months Detention and Training Order during the period 17 July to 31 December 2015 is available here:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/knife-possession-sentencing-quarterly-brief-october-to-december-2015" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/knife-possession-sentencing-quarterly-brief-october-to-december-2015</a></p><p>Any decisions and assessments taken regarding the minimum mandatory penalty are made solely by the courts. Whilst the 4 month DTO is the minimum custodial term available for 16 to 17 year old offenders, the courts also have the power to set aside the minimum term in the event of a guilty plea and/or if time has been served in custody on remand or on a tag. A decision by the courts to reduce the minimum term will result in a community penalty.</p><p>The published figures will change when the outcomes of cases passing through the criminal justice system become available on the Police National Computer. On average it takes 86 days from charging an offender for a knife possession offence to the offender receiving the court outcome. Data for the next quarter is due to be published on 9 June 2016.</p>
