answer text <p>We are aware of reports about the recent arrests of journalists, activists and human rights defenders in Egypt. Egypt is a Foreign and Commonwealth Office Human Rights Priority Country and the UK regularly raises concerns about human rights with the Egyptian Government both in public and private. On 18 September we issued a statement at the UN Human Rights Council in which we raised specific concern about the 'arrests of activists, bloggers and journalists'. I also raised our human rights concerns with the Egyptian Foreign Minister during my visit to Cairo on 14 October. We are tracking the cases in question and welcome the release of Abdel Khalik Farouk and Ibrahim el-Khateib on 29 October pending investigation.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The department makes a range of information publicly available for schools and other interested parties. Information on the finances of the multi-academy trust (MAT) they intend to join is available through the schools financial benchmarking tool, found here:</p><p><a href="https://schools-financial-benchmarking.service.gov.uk/" target="_blank">https://schools-financial-benchmarking.service.gov.uk/</a>.</p><p>Information on the people involved in the governance of the trust is available, from either the trust’s own website, or the Get Information about Schools website here:</p><p><a href="https://get-information-schools.service.gov.uk/" target="_blank">https://get-information-schools.service.gov.uk/</a>.</p><p>The department encourages Governing Bodies to consider this information before applying to become an academy.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, where a school is applying for an academy order to become an academy and join a trust, the Regional Schools Commissioner (RSC) will consider the financial health of the school and the MAT the school is joining as part of a robust assessment of the ability of the MAT to run the school. The Governing Body of a maintained school can decide not to proceed with conversion before an academy funding agreement is entered into.</p><p> </p><p>There are different arrangements when a school is directed to become an academy. In this situation, the RSC, with advice from their Headteacher Board, identifies an approved sponsor to run the school. The finances of the school, MAT and the MATs ability to run and improve the school are key elements that inform the decision. The sponsor is however under a duty to communicate their plans to improve the school to parents.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>An advance to an academy trust is an early payment on its General Annual Grant, which is allocated to the trust for that year. It is not additional funding for the trust. With each advance, there will be a mutually agreed schedule of monthly reductions to offset the advance.</p><p> </p><p>The department continues to work with the sector to build capacity and expertise in financial management and support effective school resource management with specialist advisers, three year financial forecasting and developing buying hubs and national deals for all schools. Where an academy trust requires additional support, the Education and Skills Funding Agency will work with the trust to build its capacity and help it reach a stronger position.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Alcohol Leadership Board meets every three months. Public Health England (PHE) did not consult with its Alcohol Leadership Board before beginning a partnership with Drinkaware because the timing of the campaign was such that the Alcohol Leadership Board was informed at the first opportunity once there was certainty about the collaboration.</p><p> </p><p>A copy of the terms of reference for the PHE Alcohol Leadership Board is attached.</p><p> </p><p>PHE will be commissioning an independent evaluation of the ‘Drink Free Days’ campaign, which will include an assessment of the impact on PHE’s reputation. The evaluation and subsequent peer review of the Drink Free Days campaign will be complete by May 2019. Initial indications are that the campaign has been well received by the public.</p> more like this

The research aims to identify vulnerable patients, at an early stage, who may be unlikely to respond to current treatment for anorexia, with the longer-term aim of shaping individualised support and treatment strategies.
