The Department continues to encourage local authorities to make use of the Transforming Cities Fund and other relevant national funding streams to support cycling and walking schemes and engages regularly with them in the development of their LCWIPs (Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans). Departmental officials have had discussions from time to time with representatives from the Local Government Association to discuss local authorities’ support for cycling and walking.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We have serious concerns about the human rights situation in Xinjiang and the Chinese Government’s deepening crackdown; including credible reports that over 1 million Uyghur Muslims have been held in re-education camps, and reports of widespread surveillance and restrictions targeted at ethnic minorities. Visits to Xinjiang by diplomats from our Embassy in Beijing have corroborated much of this open source reporting.</p><p>Ministers and senior officials have been raising our concerns directly with the Chinese authorities for some time, and will continue to do so. At the 40<sup>th</sup> session of the UN Human Rights Council which ran from February to March 2019, the Minister for the Commonwealth and UN, Lord Ahmad raised our concerns about Xinjiang during his opening address (on 25 February). The UK also raised concerns about Xinjiang during our item 4 statement on 12 March, and we co-sponsored a side event on “Protecting the fundamental freedoms in Xinjiang” on 13 March.</p><p>I raised our concerns about Xinjiang with Vice Minister Guo Yezhou during my visit to China on 22 July 2018. The Foreign Secretary, also raised our concerns about the region with Chinese State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi during his visit to China on 30 July 2018.</p><p>During China’s Universal Periodic Review at the UN Human Rights Council on 6 November 2018, the UK made a statement which described our concerns about the treatment of ethnic minorities in China, including Uyghurs.</p><p>Following the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), the Minister for the Commonwealth and UN issued a <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/universal-periodic-review-31st-session-minister-for-human-rights-statement" target="_blank">statement</a> where he said: “I am very concerned about the human rights situation in Xinjiang, including the re-education camps and the widespread surveillance and restrictions targeted at ethnic minorities, particularly the Uyghurs. The UK and many of our international partners have made clear during China’s UPR that this is a priority issue. We recommended that China should implement Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination recommendations in Xinjiang and allow the UN to monitor implementation.”</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Leaving the European Union with a deal remains the Government’s top priority. However, as a responsible Government we must plan for every possible outcome including ‘no deal’. The Department has published guidance to industry and the health and care system to allow them to make informed plans and preparations. This is available on GOV.UK.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has been working closely with industry to ensure the supply of medicines, including those for cancer patients, can continue uninterrupted in the event of a ‘no deal’ EU exit, including building stockpiles, providing additional warehousing space and buying freight capacity on alternative ferry routes.</p><p> </p><p>In August 2018, the Department wrote to all pharmaceutical companies that supply prescription-only and pharmacy medicines to the United Kingdom that come from, or via, the EU/European Economic Area asking them to ensure a minimum of six weeks’ additional supply in the UK, over and above existing business-as-usual buffer stocks, by 29 March 2019 in the event of a ‘no deal’ EU exit.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has put in place a multi-layered approach to minimise any supply disruption, which includes securing, via the Department for Transport, additional roll on roll off freight capacity away from the short straits crossings to Dover and Folkestone for goods to continue to come into the UK from 29 March. In addition to asking industry to build up stockpiles in the UK ahead of 29 March we have bought extra warehouse space for the additional stock to be held in. We are supporting companies in booking space on aircraft for products which require an immediate shipment due to short shelf-life or specific storage conditions. We have also made changes to, or clarifications of, certain regulatory requirements so that companies can continue to sell their products in the UK even if we have no deal. Finally, we are strengthening the processes and resources used to deal with shortages in the event that they do occur.</p><p> </p><p>We are confident that, if everyone does what they need to do, the supply of medicines and medical products will be uninterrupted.</p>
