answer text <p>Table 1 below shows estimates of the proportion of people aged 18 to 24 not in education, employment or training in regions for quarter 1, 2012 to 2015. This is based on the ONS Labour Force Survey.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Trends should be assessed by comparing the current time period with the same time period in the previous year(s), to account for seasonal effects. Therefore in Table 1, we have shown the latest quarter (January-March 2015) with January-March figures for 2012, 2013 and 2014. Estimates are not available at parliamentary constituency level.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Please note that these estimates are subject to large sampling variability and should therefore be treated with caution and viewed in conjunction with their Confidence Intervals (CIs), which indicate how accurate an estimate is. For example, a CI of +/-5.5 percentage points means that the sampling variability ranges from 5.5 percentage points above the estimate and 5.5 percentage points below the estimate. Confidence Intervals have also been provided in Table 1.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong>Table 1: Proportion of 18 to 24 year olds not in education, employment or training

answer text <p>The UK actively engages and collaborates with members of the Gulf Cooperation Council on humanitarian and development assistance, and the Gulf States continue to contribute generously to humanitarian support for the Syria crisis. Kuwait is the 3rd largest bilateral donor globally, Saudi Arabia is 5th, the UAE 6th and Qatar 10th (the UK is 2nd). Contributions from these four Gulf states to UN appeals alone amount to over $2.5bn. Kuwait chairs the Top Donor Group and has hosted three pledging conferences. The Gulf States are also contributing through regional charities. For example, the UAE funds the Emirates Jordan camp which houses over 6000 refugees.</p><p>I also discussed the issue with my Emirate counterpart, Dr Anwar Gargash, during the UK-UAE taskforce which I attended in Abu Dhabi last week.</p> more like this
