unstar this property answer text <p>​The Human Rights Watch report has made some serious and concerning allegations about human rights violations by the Palestinian Authority (PA) and we have raised our concerns with the Palestinian Ministry of Interior. Officials from our Consulate-General in Jerusalem continue to urge the PA to respect human rights, and have stressed the need to ensure freedom of speech, association and assembly. UK Official Development Assistance does not provide financial assistance or assets to support the PA agencies implicated in the Human Rights Watch report. We continue to have a no contact policy with Hamas in its entirety. The UK delivers training courses and supports the development of training institutions across the PA security sector. These courses serve to reinforce accountability, responsible governance and a common approach to the upholding of human rights and human rights law.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>It is absolutely right that passengers are compensated for the disruption they have suffered. We have worked with GTR to establish a special compensation scheme, funded by industry, which is now being delivered. Over £15 million has been paid out so far to over 60,000 passengers. This is in addition to the normal delay repay scheme which, on GTR, compensates passengers for any delay of 15 minutes or more. This compensation provides the equivalent of up to 8% of the cost of an annual season ticket for those most severely impacted.</p><p> </p><p>This compensation is more effective and targeted than a blanket 3.1% fares freeze, and benefits passengers more. This scheme means, for example, that a commuter from St Albans buying a monthly season ticket will have received around £350 in compensation, rather than saving around £120 on the cost of their season ticket.</p> more like this
