star this property answer text <p>Since launching the Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative (PSVI) in 2012, the UK has continued to lead global efforts to end the horror of sexual violence in conflict, and we have committed over £44 million in UK funding across 26 countries. The Ministry of Defence has trained 17,000 000 national and international police and military personnel, including peacekeepers, on sexual and gender-based violence issues, including in Kenya, Nigeria, DRC, Malawi and Iraq. The UK’s PSVI Team of Experts has been deployed over 90 times, to build the capacity of partner governments, the UN and NGOs. We have launched the first and second editions of the International Protocol on the Documentation and Investigation of Sexual Violence in Conflict, and employed the Protocol to build the capacity of governments, judiciary, police, military and civil society to gather evidence of sexual violence in conflict and strengthen prosecutions. It has also been used by many NGOs and international organisations such as the ICC and UN OHCHR. To help tackle the stigma of sexual violence, we launched the ‘Principles for Global Action: preventing and addressing stigma associated with conflict-related sexual violence’ at the UN General Assembly in September 2017. These principles have been used by organisations including the UN, for example as part of the Stigma Alleviation Program in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The UK will host a PSVI International Conference in November 2019 to galvanise the world into further action, and demonstrate the UK’s continued global leadership on tackling sexual violence in conflict.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The government is determined to ensure that everyone who is entitled to the National Minimum and Living Wage (NMW) receives it. Anyone who feels they have not been paid the NMW should contact Acas helpline on 0300 123 1100 or via the online complaints form at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/pay-and-work-rights-complaints" target="_blank">gov.uk</a>. HMRC reviews all complaints that are referred to them.</p><p> </p><p>Most NMW cases are subject to civil (non-criminal) sanctions, the consequences of which include fines of up to 200% of the determined underpayment, and public naming.</p><p> </p><p>Prosecution is reserved for the most serious non-compliance, and since 2007 HMRC investigations have led to the successful prosecution of 14 UK employers for NMW related offences. There have been no prosecutions relating to interns.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK and Brazil have a close dialogue on issues of mutual interest and concern, both bilaterally and globally, including on climate and the environment. We are aware of a number of proposals reported during the recent election period. The new Brazilian President takes office on 1 January 2019. It is for the Government of the day to formulate its own policies and it would be inappropriate to speculate at this stage on the decisions that the new Government may make. Climate and environment issues form an important part of our work with Brazil and we look forward to continuing our dialogue on these.</p> more like this
