star this property answer text <p>The Prime Minister, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May), has raised our strong concerns for Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe with Iranian President Rouhani several times, most recently on 24 May. The Foreign Secretary has also raised our concerns. I will continue to remind the Iranian authorities of these concerns, as I did in a phone call with the Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister on 21 June. We remain ready to facilitate Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe's daughter's return to the UK if requested.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK has supported the UN and international NGOs since the start of the conflict to deliver food, medical and other supplies to those in need, including internally displaced people. The UK has provided 19.7 million food rations, 6.7 million health consultations, and over 2 million vaccines to people in need across Syria. The UK continues to use its position in the UN Security Council and the International Syria Support Group to press the Assad regime and its backers to allow aid to reach those who need it, while maintaining the pressure for a political settlement to bring the suffering of the Syrian people to an end.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Where health facilities are constructed with DFID support, we expect implementing partners to work with architects and the Ministry of Health to ensure that basic quality standards set by local regulatory authorities are met. For example, in our Access to Health Care programme in the Democratic Republic of Congo, our implementing partners developed standard designs with the Ministry of Health and with the technical input of architects. This programme also systematically provides WASH infrastructure at health facilities, including toilets, water cisterns, and incinerators. DFID supports adherence to standards through technical advice and programme implementation, and through investments to strengthen health systems that will increase national and local capacity to improve and monitor the quality of health facilities.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK does not have any fossil fuel subsidies. The Government sees clear benefits from climate, domestic energy security and budgetary stability perspectives, of phasing out such subsidies internationally. Therefore, where helpful, we will continue to aid the global effort to phase out fossil fuel subsidies. The UK remains a strong supporter of the G20 commitment to rationalise and phase out, over the medium term, inefficient fossil fuel subsidies that encourage wasteful consumption. You may also be aware that my rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State recently announced that the UK will support the Fossil Fuel Subsidy Reform Communique - which is to be presented at the Climate Change negotiations in Paris later this year - calling for more action on this matter.</p> more like this
