answer text <p>57 countries have adopted the London 2018 Declaration committing to action to protect endangered species around the globe, with more expected to sign. This important pledge of international action reflects the success of the Illegal Wildlife Trade Conference in London in October, which was attended by more than 70 countries and more than 400 organisations. The conference focused the minds of international governments on the issue and energized global cooperation to fight the illegal wildlife trade. We will continue to work with our international partners to make progress on commitments pledged at the event.</p><p>We do not have direct information on the likely impact that action by the 57 countries who adopted the London <ins class="ministerial">2018 </ins>Declaration will have on endangered species, but the growing number of signatories <ins class="ministerial">signifies </ins>growing global ambition to <del class="ministerial">funding</del> <ins class="ministerial">tackling </ins>the illegal wildlife trade, which will increase the protection for <del class="ministerial">endagered</del> <ins class="ministerial">endangered </ins>species.</p>

answer text <p>A free media is the life blood of democracy. This is why the Foreign Secretray has put the resources of the FCO behind a global media freedom campaign. The Foreign Secretary was delighted to announce that he and his Canadian counterpart, the Honorable Chrystia Freeland, will co-host a major international conference in London on 10-11 July. My noble friend Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon has extended our invitation to the world's Foreign Ministers at the Human Rights Council in Geneva.</p> more like this

answer text <p>All decisions to prosecute made by the Crown Prosecution Service must meet the Full Code Test set out in the Code for Crown Prosecutors. The Code makes it clear that there is a balance to be struck between the public interest in diverting a defendant with significant mental illness such as dementia from the criminal justice system and other public interest factors in favour of prosecution, including the need to safeguard the public.</p><p>The eighth edition of the Code for Crown Prosecutors was published in October 2018. Prosecutors are asked to “have regard to whether the suspect is, or was at the time of the offence, affected by any significant mental or physical ill health or disability, as in some circumstances this may mean that it is less likely that a prosecution is required. However, prosecutors will also need to consider how serious the offence was, whether the suspect is likely to re-offend and the need to safeguard the public or those providing care to such persons.”</p><p>The existing CPS legal guidance on prosecuting ‘Mentally Disordered Offenders’ is currently being revised to include specific guidance on prosecuting cases where the suspect suffers from a condition such as dementia. This will be published for public consultation in 2019.</p>

answer text <p>Along with NATO Allies, we strongly support the US findings that Russia's development and deployment of its SSC-8 cruise missile system amounts to a material breach of the INF Treaty. This reflects a broader pattern of Russian behaviour that is intended to weaken the overall Euro-Atlantic security architecture. The Treaty's six-month withdrawal process offers Russia a final opportunity to return to full and verified compliance and respect its Treaty obligations.</p><p>The UK is engaged with NATO to assess the military implications for NATO in the event that Russia does not return to verifiable compliance. We remain confident in our capabilities and our ability to effectively deter and defend against Russian attempts to undermine Euro-Atlantic security. We will continue to consult regularly with Allies to keep the fielding of Russian intermediate range missiles under close review. NATO Allies reaffirmed this position on 2 February 2019.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
