However, there are so many variables involved in the process and Government does not keep records of the average length of negotiations.</p><p> </p><p>Negotiations are usually split into “rounds”, with one country visiting the other for a week to discuss the negotiated text. A negotiation may have just one round where the positions of both countries are largely aligned, but where there are particularly complex issues involved it might require several rounds.</p><p> </p><p>The time between rounds will also vary, depending on such factors as the resources and availability of negotiators in both countries as well as the political environment, which can occasionally reset a country’s negotiating position.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>HM Treasury launched a call for evidence on the regulation of pre-paid funeral plans in June 2018. The call for evidence has confirmed that consumer detriment is present in the pre-paid funeral plan sector and that there is broad demand for the sector to come under compulsory regulation.</p><p> </p><p>Consequently, the government intends to bring the pre-paid funeral plan market within the remit of the Financial Conduct Authority and is currently consulting on the proposed legislative framework to implement this proposal. This will allow the FCA to establish a robust regulatory regime which will apply to all funeral plan providers, and improve protection for consumers.</p> more like this
