star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the importance of R&amp;D to help transform the steel sector so it can play a vital role within our modern Industrial Strategy. Increasing investment in R&amp;D was one of the key recommendations in our 2017 <em>Future capacities and capabilities of the UK steel industry</em> study (<a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-steel-industry-future-market-opportunities" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-steel-industry-future-market-opportunities</a>), which sets out how the industry can increase its profitability and sustainability.</p><p>The Government’s priority remains ensuring that the Withdrawal Agreement is ratified. This would ensure that UK entities’ right to participate in the Research Fund for Coal and Steel – including bidding for funding – would be unaffected until the end of 2020.</p><p>We are considering options for supporting R&amp;D in steel beyond 2020 and will continue to work with the sector, unions and Devolved Administrations to develop a viable long-term solution. The Government will decide on science and innovation expenditure, including on R&amp;D for steel, in the next Spending Review.</p>

star this property answer text <p>​The PKK, which Mr Öcalan leads, is a proscribed group in the UK and we condemn their acts of violence as we condemn all forms of terrorism. We hope that a peace process can be resumed in the future and have provided funding to a number of civil society organisations in Turkey seeking to build dialogue between different relevant actors on the Kurdish issue. We will continue to engage with Turkey over these important issues and to maintain our support for legitimate and democratic Kurdish groups in Turkey.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​When raising Mr Öcalan's case and the situation of fellow prisoners with the Turkish authorities, we have encouraged them to implement the recommendations made by the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) following their previous visit to the prison in 2016. In this regard, we welcome the fact that Mr Öcalan was granted access to two lawyers on 2 May and again on 22 May. In further developments we also note that the CPT paid another visit to Imrali prison in mid-May, and that the Turkish Minister of Justice has also lifted the court restriction on lawyers' visits to Imrali prison. We note that hunger strikes in support of Mr Öcalan have now ended. We welcome these positive developments.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are deeply concerned about the human rights situation in Chechnya, including recent reports of renewed persecution of LGBT people. UK officials are not permitted to travel to Chechnya for their own safety so officials have met with human rights organisations operating in the region to discuss these reports. Taken together with detailed reports prepared by credible organisations including LGBT Network and Human Rights Watch, our assessment is that there has been an increase in LGBT persecution in Chechnya.</p><p>On 18 March the UK, joined by 31 other countries, delivered a statement to the UN Human Rights Council on the persecution of LGBT people in Chechnya. I also raised this issue directly with my Russian counterpart, First Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir Titov, in the margins of the Munich Security Conference in February. In November 2018, the UK was one of 16 countries to invoke the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe Moscow Mechanism to investigate allegations of human rights abuses in Chechnya. We will continue to urge Russia to follow the recommendations outlined in the report of the Moscow Mechanism.​</p>
