star this property answer text <p>Following the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s special report on the impacts of climate change of 1.5 degrees on 8 October, we commissioned our independent experts, the Committee on Climate Change, to provide their advice on the implications of the Paris Agreement for the UK’s long-term emissions reduction targets, including on setting a net zero target. The letter requesting the CCC’s advice is available <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-climate-targets-request-for-advice-from-the-committee-on-climate-change" target="_blank">here</a>.</p><p> </p><p>We will consider the Committee’s evidence-based advice carefully when it is received in Spring 2019. We believe that is the right way to approach such an important question.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The deportation of a foreign criminal is subject to the UK’s obligations under the ECHR and the Refugee Convention. Where an Article 8 claim is made, consideration is given to the public interest in deportation to determine if it is outweighed by a foreign criminal’s private or family life. The more serious the offence committed by a foreign criminal the greater the public interest in deportation.</p><p>In the case of a foreign criminal sentenced to a period of imprisonment of less than four years, the public interest requires deportation unless the exceptions to deportation, set out in paragraphs 399 and 399A of the Immigration Rules, are met.</p><p>In the case of a foreign criminal sentenced to a period of imprisonment of at least four years, the public interest requires deportation except where there are very compelling circumstances.</p><p> </p><p>The Article 8 public interest considerations were approved by Parliament during the passage of the Immigration Act 2014.</p> more like this

The Compact also contains important commitments and actions to help us tackle human trafficking and people smuggling.</p><p>Moreover, our aim is to use the Compact to further our Migration priorities within multilateral fora. This includes: reducing modern slavery; upholding migrant’s human rights; and addressing irregular migration through improved border management and safer and more productive legal migration.</p><p>We remain committed to working closely with European and Global partners to build on the momentum we have gathered thus far to ensure effective implementation of the Compact.</p><p>We look forward to the formal launch of the Compact in Marrakech this December.</p>
