star this property answer text <p>The European Supervisory Authorities - which includes the European Securities and Markets Authority - are a part of the EU’s joint supervisory framework for financial services. The UK’s future position outside of the EU will mean that the UK is no longer part of the joint supervisory framework.</p><p> </p><p>As part of preparations for leaving the EU in any scenario, HM Treasury has delivered a programme of legislation under the EU (Withdrawal) Act designed to ensure that the UK’s regulatory regime is workable. These preparations include transferring certain regulatory and supervisory functions currently carried out by the ESAs to the appropriate UK regulator, including the FCA, where the transfer of those functions is necessary to ensure an operable regulatory regime at exit.</p><p> </p><p>If the UK leaves the EU under the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement reached between the UK and the EU, the UK’s exit preparations would be delayed until the end of the agreed Implementation Period. Market access arrangements would continue and the UK would remain part of the joint supervisory framework, with ESA functions continuing to apply to the UK, until the end of the Implementation Period.</p><p> </p><p>In any exit scenario, we expect UK regulators to continue to work closely with their counterparts in the EU. This is demonstrated in the Political Declaration agreed between the UK and the EU on the future relationship, in which both sides commit to close cooperation on supervisory and regulatory matters.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government believes that it is right to reduce NOx and carbon emissions on the UK bus fleet. That is why it has provided over £240 million so far to help fund the cleanest buses, and in February 2019 announced the winners of a £48 million scheme which will fund a further 263 zero emission buses. Currently 17% of the UK bus fleet is low emission and 1% is zero emission. In 2018 4.2% of all new bus orders were for a zero-emission bus. Whilst there is no target for the number of zero emission buses by 2025 the Government is committed to the decarbonisation of the UK bus fleet.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is taking the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo extremely seriously. We are working with international partners to monitor the outbreak, and have been a leading donor to the response. UK funding to the World Health Organisation and UNICEF has enabled key activities critical to ending the outbreak including surveillance, contact tracing, infection prevention and control and vaccination.</p><p>As of 27 May 2019, there have been 1,920 confirmed and probable cases and 1,281 deaths. However, consistent disruption to response activities, a high proportion of community deaths, and a low proportion of cases from known contacts, means that the number of cases may be higher than reported.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>DFID Kenya used an internationally respected open-access modelling tool known as ‘Impact2 model’ to estimate the 322,000 additional Family Planning Users to be reached by the programme. This estimate does not include the terminations of pregnancy but covers only users of voluntary modern family planning.</p><p> </p><p>DFID’s legislative authority to provide development assistance comes under the International Development Act (IDA). The policy on safe abortion takes an evidence-based, public health approach that aims to reduce death and disability caused by unsafe abortions. The policy is also consistent with the Cairo Programme of Action, agreed at the 1994 United Nations International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD). The ICPD affirmed that in no case should abortion be promoted as a method of family planning.</p><p> </p><p>In countries where abortion is permitted, we can support development programmes that make safe abortion more accessible. In countries where it is highly restricted and maternal mortality and morbidity are high, we can help make the consequences of unsafe abortion more widely understood and can consider supporting processes of legal and policy reform.</p><p> </p><p>The UK abortion policy can be viewed on GOV.UK.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK strongly believes that displaced persons camps in Syria, including Al-Hol, Al Roj and Rukban, should not become permanent, and hope that all Syrians currently living in such camps will be able to return home in due course. We support Syrians’ right to return home voluntarily, in safety and with dignity, in line with international humanitarian law, but only when conditions are right for this to happen.</p><p> </p><p>For many, returns will not be possible without an end to the conflict in Syria. We continue to support the UN-facilitated political process for Syria, which aims to reach a lasting settlement to the conflict that protects the rights of all Syrians. Alongside this, we are also using UK Aid to support those who do wish to return home from IDP camps. For example, we are supporting education, vocational training and job creation, and contributing to the restoration of basic services. However, for the millions of Syrians who do currently remain in IDP camps across Syria, we continue to provide life-saving assistance, including providing essential food, water and sanitation, shelter and healthcare.</p>
