star this property answer text <p>The detail of the UK’s association to the EU Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation &amp; restriction of Chemicals programme after the UK leaves the EU is part of ongoing negotiations. The UK and the EU have a mutual interest in maintaining our integrated chemical supply chains as the chemicals industry is an economically significant sector in both regions, and it underpins key downstream sectors including automotive, aerospace, construction and pharmaceuticals. In the White Paper on our future relationship with the European Union published in July, the UK has proposed that chemicals are part of a UK-EU free trade area on goods, with continued UK participation in the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) underpinning this arrangement. This proposal is part of ongoing negotiation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​The FCO's departmental allocation supports a range of programme work supporting policy priorities including gender equality. Within this area, there is a particular focus on Women, Peace and Security, Sexual Exploitation and Abuse, Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict, Girls' Education and LGBT rights. The programme is agile and adaptive so the number of projects is not static.</p><p>In addition, the Commonwealth Fund operated by the FCO 2018-2020 funds two two-year programmes: the network of Women Mediators across the Commonwealth (£1.6m) and a programme to provide support to Commonwealth governments looking to reform legislation that disproportionately affects women and girls and LGBT people (£5.6m).</p><p>FCO arms-length bodies, such as the British Council, the BBC World Service, and the Chevening Scholarships Programme, also support gender equality. The FCO's delivery of programmes under the NSC's larger Conflict Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) also contribute to gender equality. All ODA programmes comply with the International Development (Gender Equality) Act (2014).</p>

star this property answer text <p>The British Government is committed to preventing sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The UK is concerned by the number of cases of sexual violence attributed to Congolese state actors. At the June 2018 UN Human Rights Council, we signed a resolution mandating an independent investigation into all human rights abuses in DRC, including sexual violence and those attributed to state actors. We also fund TRIAL International, who fight against impunity from sexual violence crimes, including bringing parliamentarians and those in the security sector to account. TRIAL International played a key role in the Kavumu trial in 2017, where 11 members of a militia were found guilty.</p> more like this

We welcome the recent release of the documentary The Profiteers, which will help to raise the international profile of this important issue. The British Government continues to work closely with regional partners, including Kenya and Uganda, international financial institutions, and other British Government departments to address the illicit financial flows fuelling the conflict in South Sudan, and to clamp down on corruption and money laundering. We continue to raise the importance of tackling illicit financial flows through all our engagement at Ministerial and senior official level.</p> more like this
