Detailed information on the location of arson offences, such as churches, may be held on court record but to be able to identify these cases, as they are not held centrally, we would have to access individual court records which would be of disproportionate cost. Matters relating to Scotland and Northern Ireland are matters for those respective devolved administrations.</p></td></tr></tbody></table> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>​The British Government has raised Mr Öcalan’s case with the Turkish authorities a number of times. The Minister for Europe and the Americas raised the issue most recently with the Turkish Ambassador on 13 May. While strongly condemning the ongoing violence perpetrated by the PKK, a proscribed terrorist organisation in the UK, we have encouraged the Turkish authorities to implement the recommendations made by the Committee for the Prevention of Torture following their visit to Imrali prison. In this regard, I welcome the fact that Mr Öcalan was granted access to two lawyers on 2 May. I also note the comment made by Mr Öcalan, via his lawyers, that individuals should not pursue these hunger strikes to the point of serious illness or death.</p> more like this

The majority of teachers in schools in England are recruited from within the UK and our priority is to meet our teacher recruitment needs domestically. However, schools have always been able to recruit staff internationally, and teachers from overseas make an important contribution to our education system.</p><p> </p><p>The department runs programmes to help schools recruit from overseas. Our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics International Teacher Recruitment Programme supports state-funded secondary schools in England with the recruitment of maths and physics teachers from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the USA.</p><p> </p><p>In our recently published ‘Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy’, we committed to exploring opportunities to develop new and existing partnerships, focusing particularly on language teachers, in order to boost the recruitment of teachers from overseas.</p><p> </p><p>The government’s white paper ‘The UK’s future skills-based immigration system’, outlined proposals to introduce a new skilled workers route, open to all countries across the globe with an expanded skills threshold covering work at Regulated Qualifications Framework level 3 and above, including teachers. Those coming to the UK on this route will need to be sponsored by an employer.</p><p> </p><p>As part of developing this new immigration system the Home Office is undertaking a programme of extensive engagement with stakeholders across the whole of the UK to shape the final details of policy and processes, and the department will continue to work very closely with them on this.</p>
