answer text <p>​In preparation for no deal, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has laid Statutory Instruments (SIs) relating to sanctions, the Kimberley Process and the Overseas Territories, under the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act (2018) and EU Withdrawal Act (2018). On sanctions, the FCO decided to lay Regulations before exit for those regimes with particular UK interests and where the EU's designations might change after exit. It was decided that it was not necessary to have a full domestic SI in place for other regimes for exit day, because it was possible to rely on retained EU law for a period.</p> more like this

answer text <p>​We have significant concerns about the Nordstream 2 pipeline. It is not necessary to meet future European demand for gas and could harm European energy security and the interests of Ukraine. For this reason, I regularly raise our concerns in discussions with key partners, including in the EU. I recently discussed this important issue with my Danish counterpart and will continue to raise it in such conversations.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Foreign &amp; Commonwealth Office provides communications to its diplomatic premises around the world through the ECHO network delivered by Vodafone. The department does not keep a register of equipment used in the ECHO network. Many official residences also make use of ECHO connectivity, or contract local communications providers. The department does not keep a central register of equipment used for non-ECHO networks. Where communications are sensitive, data is encrypted to a suitable level across the ECHO network, thereby safeguarding the information.</p> more like this
