unstar this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence (MOD) does not issue guidelines to prison governors. However, my officials work closely with their counterparts in the Ministry of Justice to address the issues facing veterans in the criminal justice system. We achieve effect through the Ex-Service Offenders Working Group (ESOWG) which includes the Ministry of Justice, the National Offender Management Service and Service charities.</p><p>The ESOWG aims to ensure that the ex-Service prison and probation offender populations, their families and resettlement services are fully informed of the support available from Defence Business Services, Veterans UK and the voluntary and charitable sectors. This support and assistance applies during imprisonment as well as pre- and post-discharge.</p><p>A key objective of the ESOWG is to ensure that the differing requirements of ex-Service prisoners are understood and communicated and that tailored support is available in those prison establishments with higher veteran populations.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We, and our allies, keep developments in the South China Sea - including the reclamation of land by the People's Republic of China - under close review. As the Secretary of State for Defence said in a speech at the Shangri-la dialogue on in Singapore on 30 May 2015 &quot;we are disturbed by the scale and speed of current land reclamation activities and the risk that these actions may pose to maritime freedom of navigation and to the stability of the South China Sea.&quot; The detail of our assessment of the military utility of Chinese activity is classified. However, it would appear that when complete their reclamation will enable and support the deployment of Chinese military force more widely, more readily and on a more enduring basis in the South China Sea than is currently possible.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Under the Five Powers Defence Arrangements, the five powers (Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore and the UK) are to consult each other &quot;immediately&quot; in the event or threat of an armed attack on Malaysia or Singapore for the purpose of deciding what measures should be taken jointly or separately in response. There is no specific commitment to intervene militarily. The Five Powers Defence Arrangements do not refer to exclusive economic zones (EEZ) and the enforcement of a state's EEZ rights is a matter for that state; a state may request the assistance of other states in so doing.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Military Aviation Authority (MAA) was established in response to the recommendations made by Mr Justice Haddon-Cave in his Nimrod Review, which called for a radical overhaul of Military Air Safety regulation.</p><p>During 10-21 November 2014 an external audit team examined the MAA looking at its effectiveness as a regulator. MAA External Audit Panel 2014 (MEAP 14) assessed that the MAA is an effective air safety regulatory body, fit for purpose in its current role, with the opportunity to improve further as it continues to develop. MEAP 14 was satisfied that the remaining Nimrod Review recommendations have been implemented as intended, and that risks identified in previous audits have been addressed.</p><p> </p><p>The establishment of the MAA as an independent regulator has transformed the Department's approach to military air safety governance, with a focus on mitigating Risk to Life through the establishment of the aviation Duty Holder construct; the publication of concise, unambiguous and readily accessible regulations; a new regime for safety cases, aircraft type certification and release to service; and the establishment of an independent air accident investigation branch which has so far investigated 21 air safety occurrences and made over 460 recommendations to improve air safety.</p><p>MEAP 14 is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/search?q=MEAP+14" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/search?q=MEAP+14</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The A400M Atlas transport aircraft is being procured as part of a European collaborative programme, and its certification basis is explicitly defined in the multinational acquisition contract.</p><p>The A400M Atlas' certification basis is drawn principally from recognised civil standards, with additional military certification as necessary for any specific military capabilities. The certification basis is overseen by the European Aviation Safety Agency, and is in accordance with established international airworthiness standards. The European Aviation Safety Agency has granted Type Certificates for the A400M aircraft type, engine and propeller.</p><p>To obtain these Type Certificates, Airbus Defence and Space (the A400M Atlas Design Authority) had to present appropriate evidence for validation and approval by the European Aviation Safety Agency. In addition, certification evidence is also reviewed by an independent certification and qualification organisation established by the partner nations to provide an additional level of military certification expertise.</p><p>A400M Atlas is already subject to a rigorous, independent certification process that has been accepted by all participating nations, and that is conducted by a competent European regulatory body with significant lineage in the certification of all Airbus aircraft products. They will review certification requirements and the associated evidence when there is new information to consider. Consequently, there are currently no plans to review this.</p>
