As referred to in the previous answer we have invested a significant amount of funding in a new independent Centre of Expertise on Child Sexual Abuse which is drawing on government, academic, law enforcement and civil society sources of information to assess the scale and nature of CSEA.</p><p>With enhanced understanding of the nature and demographics of offending, we will further improve our response. We have not assessed the Quilliam report assessment. We will ensure that the work of the Centre of Expertise, bringing in other partners, considers the wide range of information available, including the Quilliam report.</p> more like this

The Burmese military has committed to take action and we strongly urge them to follow an independent, due legal process and be transparent about the prosecution of the perpetrators. The Burmese authorities should also condemn such extrajudicial acts unequivocally.

British Embassy officials in Tel Aviv most recently raised the issue with the Israeli authorities on 16 January, and senior British Government officials raised this issue with the Israeli Ambassador to the UK on 8 January. The Minister for the Middle East raised our concerns with the Israeli Government during his visit to Israel in August 2017. We have recently raised this as part of the UN Human Rights Council's Universal Periodic Review into Israel.</p><p>We recognise that in some circumstances the Israelis have a legitimate need to deploy security measures to address instances of violence. We encourage that such measures are deployed in a way which minimises tension and using only appropriate force.
