star this property answer text <p>The Department follows expert advice from the Health and Safety Executive regulator that when asbestos-containing materials are undamaged, and not in locations where they are vulnerable to damage, they should be left undisturbed and their condition monitored. Blanket or accelerated removal of asbestos could potentially be dangerous, as it releases harmful fibres that would otherwise be contained.</p><p>The amount of asbestos in schools will reduce over time through rebuilding and refurbishment of the estate. When asbestos cannot be effectively managed in situ, it should be removed and the Department will provide condition funding which can be used to manage asbestos safely.</p><p>Since 2015, the Department has allocated over £7.4 billion to those responsible for school buildings for essential maintenance, including removing or encapsulating asbestos when it is the safest course of action to do so.</p><p>Through the Priority School Building Programme, the Department is rebuilding or refurbishing buildings in the worst condition at over 500 schools across the country. Asbestos was a factor in prioritising buildings for the programme.</p>

We acknowledge that ensuring that there are sufficient numbers of properly skilled workers across the sector will require continued investment and support from Industry.</p><p>Defence is working closely with other Government Departments and industry to develop and reinvigorate the pipeline of skills for shipbuilding in the UK and to improve the industry's productivity and competitiveness. In September, the Prime Minister appointed the Defence Secretary the Shipbuilding Tsar for this Government to better realise the potential that this sector can offer across the four Home Nations and to strengthen UK shipbuilding.</p> more like this

We regularly raise concerns with China on the treatment of religious and ethnic minorities, and continue to monitor evidence surrounding abuses taking place within China’s transplant system.</p><p>On 26 September during an Urgent Question on Hong Kong, the Foreign Secretary set out the UK’s position on the persecution of religious groups in China, including Falun Gong practitioners, on the grounds of religion or belief. As the Foreign Secretary stated in the House, we are concerned that Chinese Government guidelines on unapproved religious activity, education and travel may restrict the peaceful observation of those rights. Further, at the 41<sup>st</sup> session of the UN Human Rights Council in July 2019, we raised our concerns about freedom of religion or belief in our ‘Item 4’ national statement.</p> more like this
