The UK has played a leading role in diplomatic efforts and will continue to do so. My Right Honourable Friend the Foreign Secretary visited Yemen in March. He also hosted a ministerial Quad meeting last month to discuss implementation of the Hodeidah agreement and next steps in the political process. I welcome reports over the weekend that the Houthis have begun their withdrawal from Hodeidah. I look forward to receiving independent verification from the UN and hearing the assessment of the UN Special Envoy during his briefing to the Security Council.</p><p> </p> more like this

In the event that a company is unable to meet its contractual obligation when they fall into administration, consumers who paid for goods using their credit card are protected under section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (CCA) and should contact their card issuing company. In some circumstances, debit card payments can be refunded through the Chargeback scheme and consumers should seek further information from their bank.</p><p>The Insolvency Agency, an executive agency of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, acts as an impartial source of information for the public and HMG on insolvency and redundancy matters.</p><p> </p> more like this

This approach was taken so that this non-statutory model music curriculum can be made available before the end of the summer term. The Department ran the procurement in accordance with Government procurement rules, which allow for selective tendering for requirements valued below £20,000.</p><p>The Incorporated Society of Musicians and Music Mark were invited to bid as the two UK music subject associations. The Associated Board for the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) was invited to bid as the largest music education body in the UK.</p><p>The Department has received offers from practitioners to participate in development of the model curriculum. As part of their work, the expert panel and the lead drafter have been drawing on input from members of the teaching profession and from wider music organisations. This will continue to be the case throughout the duration of the development process. The model music curriculum will build on and will not conflict with the statutory music curriculum.</p><p> </p>
