star this property answer text <p>Net migration statistics are produced by the independent Office for National Statistics (ONS). In line with the internationally agreed UN definition, these statistics define a migrant as someone changing their normal place of residence for more than a year. This includes students in net migration in the same way as other migrants. Other countries, including the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand also include students in their net migration figures. <br><br>Net migration measures the difference between the number of peoplecoming the UK and the number leaving, so if students return home after<br>their studies, their impact on long-term net migration will be minimal. The ONS has recently improved its methodology so that it is possible to<br>better identify students in the emigration flows to give a more accurate measure of the contribution of students to overall net migration.In the last year, 124,000 non-EU students came to Britain to stay for more than 12 months, and the ONS estimates that only 50,000 left the country. <br><br>All migrants who are in the UK for 12 months or more have an impact on our communities, infrastructure and public services. Changing the way we measure migration would not make any difference to our student migration policy. There is no cap on the number of students who can come to the UK, and the county remains open to the brightest and the best.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Departmental spend on commissioning the Child Abuse Image Database (CAID) for the first year is £1,473,179, which is being recharged to police forces. It is estimated that CAID will save the police £7.474 million by March 2017 by speeding up police processes.<br><br>The project has been developed using data from Interpol and, where appropriate, this information will be included in the initial database load for CAID.<br><br>The CAID system will be available to all police forces in the UK and National Crime Agency – Child Exploitation and Online Protection (NCA-CEOP) Command via the police secure network. All forces will be accredited to access this data supported by the Home Office project team and security advisers. The CAID system allows the use of forces’ existing image grading and hashing software. <br><br>Any additional software needed to access CAID and to upload new material from the forces/NCA-CEOP Command to the database is provided as part of the central project at no cost to the forces. <br><br>Each force is responsible for its own set-up costs to establish the connectivity of their force High Tech Crime Unit or Grading Unit in an <br>enhanced, secure way to the police secure network that already exists in their forces.<br><br>It is expected that the CAID will cost forces approximately £20,000 per year in service costs (which are used to maintain and improve the database). This cost has been agreed with the National Policing lead for Child Protection and Abuse Investigation.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

Border Force works closely with the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) to ensure its targeting is responsive to the latest animal disease risk assessments and changing threats at the border. Most recently Border Force has been involved in the cross government response to the current outbreak of Ebola and has adjusted its targeting of illegal meat to take account of this risk. Border Force also deploys a pool of detector dogs specifically trained to detect illegal meat.<br><br>Border Force treats all meat as potentially hazardous and infected and all seized meat is secured and incinerated strictly in accordance with animal health regulations.<br><br>Meat seized by Border Force will include bushmeat, for which there is no precise definition but is accepted to be the meat of wild animals hunted for food. <br><br>In addition to the enforcement activity carried out at the border, Border Force works closely with the National Crime Agency who can investigate and prosecute serious offenders.
