That is why we are speaking to all parties and specifically advising Iran – using our diplomatic relationship – that escalation is not in their interest. We are also concerned by the potential of further tension as a result of the failure of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. We are clear that maintaining this deal is important to our national security interests; the UK Government is working with our European partners to ensure it is upheld as long as Iran continues to meet its nuclear commitments in full.</p> more like this

We are unable to substantiate these numbers given the challenges of obtaining precise data in north east Nigeria. Boko Haram is a terrorist organisation with a vile ideology and history of attacking civilians, both Christian and Muslim. The majority of Boko Haram's victims have been Muslims. The UK condemns attacks on civilians, including on the basis of their religious belief. The Foreign Secretary discussed the issue of freedom of religious belief and UK support to combat extremists with the Nigerian Vice President during his visit to Nigeria in April. He also met with a wide range of religious leaders to discuss how the UK can support their work to promote interfaith dialogue and long-term peace, and visited North East Nigeria.</p> more like this

The education of girls continues to be a priority for UK development assistance in Pakistan. Under the Punjab Education Sector Programme, we are working with a local partner organisation to reintegrate young and adolescent girls who have left school prematurely back into mainstream schools or vocational education. Within less than a year, over 4000 girls have benefitted from this intervention so far.</p><p>The British Government supports other programmes designed to improve human rights and opportunities for women, religious minorities and marginalised groups. For example, the Department for International Development's AAWAZ II programme works with communities to promote rights of children, women, youth and religious minorities, protect them from exploitation, and prevent discrimination and intolerance. It also funds interventions in support of ending child marriage.</p><p>During my visit to Pakistan in February, I raised our concerns about child protection, the treatment of minority communities and the issue of forced marriage with Pakistan's Federal Minister for Human Rights, Dr Shireen Mazari.</p><p>We will continue to urge the Government of Pakistan to take the steps necessary to comply in full with its human rights obligations to vulnerable groups, including religious minorities and women and girls.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK is deeply concerned about the challenges facing over a million Palestinian refugees who rely on food assistance in Gaza. We recognise that Palestinian refugees need UNRWA to be on a more secure financial footing. To that end, the UK is working with UNRWA and other donors to support cost cutting efforts, diversify donor income, and encourage multi-year funding commitments.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is a leading donor to UNRWA and I can confirm that the UK has committed to providing up to £80m to UNRWA over the next two years. However, a long-term solution requires a just, fair, agreed and realistic settlement for Palestinian refugees. Until that happens the UK remains firmly committed to supporting UNRWA and Palestinian refugees.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to preserving the UK’s high standards of biosecurity and animal welfare. The EU Pet Travel Scheme requires all pets travelling to Great Britain on approved routes to be declared. 100% of these are then subject to documentary and identity checks. All commercial EU consignments of dogs or cats receive documentary checks on entry and the Animal and Plant Health Agency conducts further risk based checks away from the border. We have increased resourcing at major UK ports to detect smuggled animals and continue to work collaboratively with Border Force, sharing intelligence in order to disrupt illegal imports.</p><p>On 13 May this year a statutory instrument[1] was laid in Parliament which will introduce a ban on commercial third party sales of puppies and kittens in England. This decision followed a public consultation which received over 6,500 responses, 96% of which supported the proposal. The ban itself is planned to come into force on 6 April 2020 and, once in place, anyone seeking to buy or adopt a kitten will have to deal directly with the breeder or with one of the UK’s many animal rehoming centres. Restricting the sale of kittens to licensed breeders has the potential to help deter people motivated to illegally import kittens for the purpose of financial gain.</p><p>[1] <a href="https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukdsi/2019/9780111186954" target="_blank">The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2019</a></p>

That will include engaging closely with parties interested in future uses of the site in Swindon owned by Honda.</p><p>The taskforce, led by local partners will actively assess and focus on minimising potential impacts of Honda closing its manufacturing operations, embracing future economic opportunities before, during and after Honda close their site. Honda has stated that they will retain a significant operational presence in the UK, and through a network of over 800 dealerships and distributors.

The no deal scenario is based on an assessment of the average trade barriers that a country trading on WTO terms faces. Whilst all economic modelling is inherently uncertain, the increase in trade barriers under the modelled no deal scenario is estimated to result in lower UK-EU trade volumes in the long run compared to today's arrangements; (1) UK imports from the EU are estimated to be between 34-43% lower and (2) UK exports to the EU are estimated to be between 30-40% lower.</p><p> </p> more like this

All indications were that a chemical weapons attack had taken place. UK medical and scientific experts analysed reports, images and video footage from the incident and concluded that the victims had been exposed to a toxic chemical, which was corroborated by first-hand accounts from NGOs and aid workers. The World Health Organisation received reports that hundreds of patients arrived at Syrian health facilities with &quot;signs and symptoms consistent with exposure to toxic chemicals&quot;. A significant body of information, including intelligence, indicated that the Syrian regime was responsible for the attack using barrel bombs dropped from helicopters.</p><p>A subsequent thorough investigation by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) found reasonable grounds to conclude that use of a toxic chemical as a weapon, likely molecular chlorine, had taken place. We expect further investigation in due course by the OPCW Investigation and Identification Team to focus on identifying those responsible.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government set out its long term national strategy for full fibre connectivity in the Future telecoms Infrastructure review, following a public Call for Evidence, extensive engagement with stakeholders and experts, and evidence from a range of other sources, including external analysis.</p><p> </p><p>The Review committed to an ‘Outside In’ approach to deployment, to support areas which are likely to require additional funding - we expect these to be mostly in rural and remote areas.
