unstar this property answer text <p>​The devastation caused by the recent hurricanes left the British Virgin Islands (BVI) without access to basic necessities like running water, electricity and shelter. The Government, through its regional taskforce, mounted an operation to provide immediate humanitarian relief and continues to work with the Government of the British Virgin Islands to help restore vital public infrastructure. To this end the BVI Government, with other regional development partners and the UK's Royal Engineers, is conducting thorough needs assessments for the restoration of basic infrastructure on the islands. Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon, FCO Minister for the Overseas Territories recently met the Premier of the British Virgin Islands to discuss the BVI Government's draft plans for near-term recovery and ongoing UK support.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We do not hold data on how many local authorities have specific anti-trafficking programmes. All local authorities in England and Wales have a duty under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 to notify the Home Office if they encounter a victim of modern slavery. They are also all ‘first responders’ under the National Referral Mechanism and so are able to refer victims for specialist support. Guidance on these referral processes is available on GOV.UK.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The welfare of gamebirds is protected by the Animal Welfare Act 2006 which makes it an offence to cause any unnecessary suffering to an animal or to fail to provide an animal with its welfare needs. The statutory Gamebird code, which was made under the 2006 Act, provides additional protection and provides keepers with guidance on how to meet the welfare needs of their gamebirds. Failure to follow the code's recommendations can be used in evidence in court to support a welfare prosecution. Inspectors from theAnimal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) will refer to the code when they have been asked to inspect a game farm. When required APHA advise farmers on achieving compliance and, if appropriate, legal action will be taken.</p><p> </p> more like this

We have committed to doubling our aid spend in support of this objective to £150 million. In Libya, we have provided humanitarian aid to migrants and refugees and delivered assistance in detention centres. We are also increasing our engagement with the Libyan law enforcement authorities to tackle organised crime and trafficking. We have provided specific support to women and girls, to protect them from the heightened risks of trafficking and sexual and gender based violence. The UK regularly raises with the Libyan Government the need for wider respect for human rights and accountability.</p> more like this
