No-one should be risking their life in an attempt to enter the UK in such dangerous ways, and the Home Office continues to work with international partners to tackle the organised criminal gangs who are coordinating such attempts. Those who need international protection claim asylum in the first safe country they reach, as that is the fastest route to safety.</p><p>It is not possible to ascertain the motives of individuals seeking to travel to the UK, whether to seek sanctuary or otherwise.

It has also been the subject of inspection by the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration (ICIBI). In response to recommendations in his 2017 report a number of adjustments were made to the policy clarifying that a child’s best interests must be taken into account when considering an application for registration as a British citizen. Updated guidance to reflect these changes was published in January 2019.</p><p>In addition, the good character requirement was the subject of a Policy Equality Statement, demonstrating compliance with the Public Sector Equality Duty, when the British Nationality Act 1981 (Remedial) Order 2019 was laid.</p> more like this

The Government introduced a new pilot for 2019 and 2020 enabling up to 2,500 non-European Economic Area migrant workers to come to the UK to undertake seasonal employment in the edible horticultural sector. As of June 2019, pilot operators had recruited all 2,500 workers who continued to arrive in the following months for the harvesting of winter vegetables. This pilot is not designed to meet the full labour needs of the horticultural sector. Rather we are seeking to evaluate the immigration pilot’s ability to assist in alleviating labour shortages during peak production periods.</p><p> </p><p>Defra and the Home Office continue to monitor the impact of the seasonal workers pilot and the workforce pressures faced by farmers as we look at how best to support the longer-term needs of industry outside the EU.</p><p> </p><p>EU citizens can continue to come to the UK for work in 2019 and 2020 regardless of whether the UK reaches a deal with the EU. This includes for seasonal work on farms. EU citizens arriving after we leave the EU, in a no deal scenario, will need to apply for European Temporary Leave to Remain, granting a further 36 months in the UK if they want to stay after 31 December 2020, which is the deadline for applying to the scheme.</p><p> </p>

A summary of progress on each of the 16 open and approved stretches, with opening dates where known, is included in Tables A and B. The 50 unopened stretches are summarised in Table C. It is not currently possible to give estimated opening dates for many of the stretches still in progress. This is because the timeline for the final stages of the process depends on several factors including the number and nature of comments during the public consultation and the complexity of implementing works on the ground.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Table A - Open stretches</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Stretch name</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Opening date</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Rufus Castle to Lulworth Cove</p></td><td><p>29/06/2012</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Allonby to Whitehaven</p></td><td><p>11/04/2014</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>North Gare to South Bents</p></td><td><p>12/04/2014</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Sea Palling to Weybourne</p></td><td><p>12/12/2014</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Brean Down to Minehead</p></td><td><p>15/03/2016</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Camber to Folkestone</p></td><td><p>19/07/2016</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Folkestone to Ramsgate</p></td><td><p>19/07/2016</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Filey Brigg to Newport Bridge</p></td><td><p>21/07/2016</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Hopton On Sea to Sea Palling</p></td><td><p>24/10/2016</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>South Bents to Amble</p></td><td><p>26/07/2018</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Skegness to Mablethorpe</p></td><td><p>27/02/2019</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Newport Bridge to North Gare</p></td><td><p>18/09/2019</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p>Table B - Unopened stretches undergoing building works</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Stretch name</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Opening date</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Walney Island</p></td><td><p>February 2020 (estimate)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Whitehaven to Silecroft</p></td><td><p>TBC</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Ramsgate to Whitstable</p></td><td><p>TBC</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Maldon to Salcott</p></td><td><p>TBC</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p>Table C - Unopened stretches</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Region</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Stretches</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>South West</p></td><td><p>8</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>West</p></td><td><p>4</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>South</p></td><td><p>7</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>South East</p></td><td><p>6</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Essex</p></td><td><p>8</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>East</p></td><td><p>7</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>North East</p></td><td><p>5</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>North West</p></td><td><p>5</p></td></tr></tbody></table>

star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Justice provides funding to specialist sexual violence services to support victims to cope and, where possible, recover from the impact of crime. On 18 September, we announced an additional £5m to support victims of sexual violence, which commits £32m over three years.</p><p>In addition, local Commissioners (be they Police and Crime Commissioners, Local Authorities or health commissioners) will also seek to provide specialist support to victims in their area. To support this, in December 2016 we published the National Statement of Expectations, which sets out a blueprint for local service provision, including how Commissioners can best respond to the needs of minority or marginalised groups.</p><p>In 2016/17 MHCLG also provided £300k to Imkaan to build capacity and strengthen specialist BAME organisations, including through training, quality standard accreditation and access to the tools they need to measure their impact.</p><p>On 18<sup>th</sup> September we appointed Nicole Jacobs as the first Designate Domestic Abuse Commissioner, who will raise awareness of domestic abuse, stand up for victims, and drive up consistency in the response to domestic abuse. The Commissioner is required to appoint a specific thematic lead within her office to consider and address the needs of BAME victims.</p><p>We are also exploring ways to improve support for BAME victims as part of our work to tackle racial disparity in the Criminal Justice System.</p>
