answer text <p>All doors being placed on the UK market must meet the required standards they are advertised as meeting. Wherever the Government is made aware this is not the case we have taken action to withdraw the product from the market.</p><p>Following the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s (MHCLG) investigation into Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) composite fire doors, MHCLG took swift action to stop the production and distribution of this type of fire door. As a result, no new doors of this type were placed on the market, until evidence that they consistently meet the standard has been demonstrated. MHCLG also acted with industry to ensure that all GRP composite fire doors already on the market were withdrawn from sale.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Last year the UK led international efforts to help ensure UNRWA’s essential services were maintained, by almost doubling our original core support of £33.5 million to £65.5 million, including £5 million for Gaza, and lobbying other donors to step up to ensure the funding burden is shared more evenly across the international community. Both the UK and UNRWA recognise the need for UNRWA to reform to ensure its sustainability, and UNRWA has undertaken significant cost-cutting measures to respond to budget cuts and growing need. We welcome UNRWA’s efforts to broaden its donor base and are encouraging partners to step up with more funding and more predictable disbursements.</p><p> </p><p>The UK has a multi-year commitment to support UNRWA and we plan to continue to fund the Agency in line with that agreement. This will provide basic services such as health and education to Palestinian refugees in Gaza, the West Bank and the region. A long-term solution requires a just, fair, agreed and realistic settlement for Palestinian refugees. Until that happens the UK remains firmly committed to supporting UNRWA and Palestinian refugees.</p>

answer text <p>Due to the current absence of an Executive in Northern Ireland, discussions between HMG and the administration are currently being held with officials in the Northern Irish Civil Service. The monthly EU Exit Devolved Administrations Forum, which rotates location between Edinburgh, Cardiff, Belfast and London, is one particular example of cross-governmental engagement on business issues. In January, the forum discussed various issues relevant to the devolved administrations, such as no deal planning, Statutory Instruments, as well as other topics such as business engagement and operational readiness regarding EU Exit.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Regarding support for Northern Ireland entrepreneurs, they can access support through schemes such as the the Go For It programme providing step by step advice and mentoring to produce their own business plan for people wishing to start a business. The British Business Bank-owned StartUp Loans Company (SULCO) has lent 945 startup loans, worth over £6.5 million. The Autumn Budget 2018 announced that Government would extend Start-Up Loans funding to 2021, meaning it will be able to back a further 10,000 entrepreneurs across the UK.</p>

answer text <p>We want to secure reciprocal arrangements in a ‘no deal’ exit, so that no-one faces sudden changes to how they obtain healthcare.</p><p> </p><p>The United Kingdom has made a generous unilateral offer to European Union citizens resident in the UK; through the EU settlement scheme, they will be able to work, study, and access benefits and services on broadly the same terms as now. We believe Member States have responsibilities and a duty of care towards UK nationals and are urging the EU and all its Member States to make the same commitment to protect the rights of UK nationals in the EU.</p><p> </p><p>The Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill will give the Government the power to fund and arrange payments for healthcare for UK nationals (or former residents) outside of the UK, as well as to share the necessary data in relation to this.</p><p> </p><p>This will enable the Government to work to ensure reciprocal healthcare arrangements continue when we leave the EU, whether through arrangements with the EU as a whole or, individual arrangements with EU Member States.</p><p> </p><p>The UK and Irish Governments have both set out their firm intention to maintain current reciprocal access to local health services under the Common Travel Area framework, and work on this is at an advanced stage.</p><p> </p><p>We have informally approached other Member States and are prioritising those that are the major pensioner, worker and tourist destinations. We will shortly be writing to all EU Member States, along with the EU Commission, formally outlining our generous offer on reciprocal healthcare. This will be subject to ongoing discussions.</p>
