answer text <p>Monitoring the market for misselling is the responsibility of the regulators, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Pensions Regulator. The FCA, in line with its remit to protect consumers and ensure markets function in consumers’ interests, has specifically committed to monitoring developments in the retirement income market closely and to take action where consumers are coming to harm or where the market is not operating competitively.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Alongside this the Treasury has launched a consultation looking at options to address excessive charges for early exit penalties, and making the process for transferring pensions from one scheme to another quicker and smoother.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Government remains in close contact with the regulators, and other organisations such as industry trade bodies, on these issues.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The RAF does not routinely give individual aircraft names and there is no formal protocol or regulation regarding the naming of RAF aircraft. However, aircraft are occasionally given names and there is precedent, particularly during World War II, for philanthropic individuals or groups to donate aircraft and they were often given the opportunity to name them.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Prestwick Airport is used by the RAF as a stopping point en route to North America and for training purposes. In the current financial year, to date, it is estimated that approximately £326,000 has been spent on landing and handling fees.</p><p>The airport is also used infrequently by other parts of defence, such as Joint Helicopter Command, but information regarding this usage is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The UK is a proud supporter of women’s rights internationally. Women Deliver 2019 will be an important moment to rally global support for this agenda. We are currently in discussions with the organisers about how best the UK can engage. Far more needs to be done to combat the appalling levels of violence that women and girls experience every day around the world. The Department for International Development’s ground-breaking research into violence against women and girls has demonstrated that violence is preventable, and we are committed to using this evidence to scale up our work to prevent violence and to influence our international partners to do the same. That is why in November my Right Hon Friend the Secretary of State announced an additional £50m to tackle Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). This was just the latest demonstration of the UK Government’s commitment to doing more to improve the lives of women and girls in all contexts. I also hope it will encourage other governments to step up and invest more in preventing violence against women and girls in all its forms.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The UK is a world leader in championing prevention of Violence Against Women and Girls through research, programmes and partnerships. Our £25million What Works to Prevent Violence programme is the largest global investment in research into prevention of violence against women and girls. The Department for International Development is committed to maintaining the UK’s global leadership in this area. Work to prevent violence against women and girls in DFID consists of standalone prevention programming, integrated violence prevention and response programmes, and a wide range of interventions incorporated into wider education, women’s economic empowerment and social protection programmes. This complexity means that we do not specifically track all this spend as gender-based violence prevention.</p><p> </p> more like this
