answer text <p>The detail of the UK’s association to the EU Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation &amp; restriction of Chemicals programme after the UK leaves the EU is part of ongoing negotiations. The UK and the EU have a mutual interest in maintaining our integrated chemical supply chains as the chemicals industry is an economically significant sector in both regions, and it underpins key downstream sectors including automotive, aerospace, construction and pharmaceuticals. In the White Paper on our future relationship with the European Union published in July, the UK has proposed that chemicals are part of a UK-EU free trade area on goods, with continued UK participation in the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) underpinning this arrangement. This proposal is part of ongoing negotiation.</p> more like this

This is in line with the arrangements that the UK might want to offer other close trading partners in future, where they support new and deep trade deals. This is subject to wider negotiations with the EU.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government published its Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review (FTIR) in July 2018, setting out its strategy for delivering its target for a nationwide full fibre broadband network by 2033. On 29 October, DCMS published two of the consultations promised in the FTIR, on new legislation to reform existing access agreement arrangements to provide a right of entry for communication providers in cases of absentee landlords, and to ensure full fibre connections to new build developments. At Budget, the Government also announced £200m from the National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF) to further support the deployment of full fibre to the commercially most difficult to reach premises. In its October Connected Nations report, Ofcom confirmed that full fibre coverage had reached 1.4 million premises in May 2018, up from less than 900,000 premises in May 2017. Commitments to full fibre rollout from industry have also continued, for example with CityFibre recently announcing a £2.5 billion investment plan to expand its full fibre network to 5 million homes.</p>

answer text <p>Local authorities are under a statutory obligation to provide accommodation for unaccompanied children who arrive in their area. This means that they become looked after children and should be safeguarded and have their welfare promoted in the same way as any other looked after child. To help support this, the government has revised the ‘Statutory guidance on the care of unaccompanied migrant children and child victims of modern slavery’, which was published 1 November 2017: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/care-of-unaccompanied-and-trafficked-children" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/care-of-unaccompanied-and-trafficked-children</a>.</p><p>The government recognises that unaccompanied asylum seeking and refugee children can be some of the most vulnerable in our society. The government’s vision and additional commitment to caring for these children is set out in the strategy for ‘Safeguarding unaccompanied asylum seeking and refugee children’, published 1 November 2017: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/safeguarding-unaccompanied-asylum-seeking-and-refugee-children" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/safeguarding-unaccompanied-asylum-seeking-and-refugee-children</a>.</p><p> </p>
