star this property answer text <p>In the event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal, all animals, products of animal origin (POAO), fish, shellfish, crustaceans, germplasm or fishery products exported from the UK to the EU will require an export health certificate (EHC). EHCs have to be certified by either a suitably accredited Official Veterinarian (OV) or, in the case of fish and fish products, either an OV or an Environmental Health Officer (EHO) employed by a local authority.</p><p> </p><p>Defra does not employ OVs or EHOs so we have engaged with the private sector and local government to identify means of increasing the number of authorised signatories available. From February we have provided free training for vets to become accredited to sign EHCs. Over 300 vets have completed the training, an increase of just under 50% in the total number of suitably qualified OVs.</p><p> </p><p>To support OVs we also created a new role of Certification Support Officer (CSO). A CSO can handle preparatory and administrative aspects of EHCs (checking documents, identifying products or sealing containers). This will free up OV time and capacity to provide the final assurance required. The number of qualified CSOs stands at 84.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>My right hon. Friend the Defence Secretary has not yet had the opportunity to speak with her Turkish counterpart, but we have repeatedly raised our concerns about the proposed Turkish purchase of the Russian S-400 air and missile defence system, at Ministerial and official level. Turkey is a valued NATO ally, on the front line of some of the UK and the Alliance's most difficult security challenges. Defence equipment procurement decisions are for nations, but all NATO Allies have committed to reducing their dependence on Russian-sourced military equipment. The proposed purchase would pose real challenges for the interoperability of NATO systems.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>HM Government continuously monitors the global economy, and the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) produces the Government’s official economic forecasts. The OBR’s most recent forecast was published in March 2019 and can be accessed at https://obr.uk/efo/economic-fiscal-outlook-march-2019/. The UK economy remains resilient, growing for the ninth consecutive year in 2018. The employment rate is currently at a record high, unemployment is currently at its lowest rate since 1974, and real wages are rising.</p><p> </p><p>In October 2018 the IMF estimated the impact of a trade tensions escalation. They estimated the impact would be global real GDP 0.2% lower in 2019 and 0.21% lower in the long term. The analysis also highlighted that the near term negative impact could be exacerbated by a decline in confidence and market reaction.</p><p> </p><p>The UK has consistently stressed the importance of de-escalating trade tensions, which are in no one’s interest.</p> more like this

This route will not be capped allowing all of those who meet our requirements to come to the UK and we intend to abolish the existing Resident Labour Market Test for highly skilled roles.</p><p><br>The White Paper also includes, as a transitional measure, a temporary workers route which will be open to anyone from qualifying countries, wishing to fill positions at any skill level, for up to 12 months.
