star this property answer text <p>The Student Loans Company (SLC) records the nationality and domicile of individuals when they apply for student support. Domicile is based on the applicant’s residence in the years prior to starting their course, and is held as a region within the UK or as EU, rather than by individual country of domicile.<p>Eligibility for student support is based on residence. EU nationals, including non-European Economic Area (EEA) family members, are able to apply for a tuition fee loan if they have been resident in the EEA or Switzerland for the three years prior to the first day of the first academic year of their course. In addition, EU nationals who have been resident in the UK for five years (three years up to academic year 2016/17) and are resident in England prior to starting their course can also apply for maintenance support. EEA migrant workers and their family members, including those who are non-EEA nationals, who meet the residency requirements, are able to apply for both tuition fee and maintenance support. Non-EEA nationals may also be eligible for student support if they are granted refugee status, have been granted humanitarian protection, have acquired permanent residence in the UK, or have been in the UK for at least half their lives or for at least 20 years.</p><p> </p><p>The table below sets out SLC Management Information on the number of students paid either a full-time tuition fee or

star this property answer text <p>The UK has a long and proud tradition of providing a safe haven to those who genuinely need our protection. We do not remove asylum seekers. Those who are found not to need protection are refused but have a right of appeal to the independent courts. Once appeals rights are exhausted they are required to leave the UK.</p><p>The term 'deportation' refers to returns which are enforced following either a criminal conviction in the UK (or overseas) which has resulted in a custodial sentence of 12 months or more, or where it is considered that removal of an individual is conducive to the public good due to their criminality.</p><p>Those individuals who do not need protection are expected to return home if their asylum claim is refused and dismissed on appeal. All asylum and human rights claims are carefully considered on their individual merits in accordance with the UK’s obligations under the 1951 United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and the European Convention on Human Rights.</p><p>Where a decision has been made that a person does not require international protection, and there are no remaining rights of appeal or obstacles to their return, the Home Office expects unsuccessful asylum seekers to return voluntarily to their home country. The Home Office’s preferred option is for those who have no legal basis to remain in the UK to leave voluntarily and we offer assistance to those who choose to do so by actively promoting the Home Office Voluntary Return Service.</p><p>If an individual does not leave the UK voluntarily, then it may become necessary to enforce their removal. The Home Office closely monitors developments in all countries of return and takes decisions on a case-by-case basis in the light of international obligations and the latest available country information. The Home Office only enforces removal when it and the courts conclude that it is safe to do so, with a safe route of return. Enforced removals are carried out in the most sensitive way possible, treating those being removed with respect and courtesy.</p>

As part of our comprehensive support for the camp clearance we transferred more than 750 children to the UK directly from France. Those children who were not eligible for transfer to the UK are in the care of French authorities.</p><p>The French Government is alive to the threat of new camps appearing in northern France and we are aware of reports of some migrants returning to the area. However, official figures for the number of children present in the area are not available. Children in France are the responsibility of the French authorities.</p><p>On 10 March, the Government published the basis on which further transfers to the UK under section 67 of the Immigration Act 2016 will be made. The Government has invited referrals of eligible children from France, Italy and Greece. The UK Government will not be involved in the identification or assessment of children.</p><p>Under Article 8 of the Dublin III Regulation, children can have their asylum claims transferred to another EU Member State where they have close family. We continue to work closely with the French authorities and other EU partners to ensure the timely and efficient operation of the Dublin III Regulation.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Transport and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) work with a wide range of partners, including the British Airline Pilots' Association and the Police, to ensure our understanding of potential hazards to aircraft remains up to date. Work is underway to better understand the risk posed by drones to commercial aircraft and ensure that the regulatory and industry responses remain fit for purpose. The Government has conducted a consultation to determine if further measures are needed in this area and will be responding to this soon with its intended future actions.</p><p> </p><p>We have also been working closely with the CAA and industry to adapt and strengthen existing measures and mitigations as drone use and the related technology evolves. This has led to a safety awareness and education campaign aimed at leisure drone users, the launch of a new www.dronesafe.uk website, and a free new app ‘Drone Assist’ by NATS, which shows users where they should and should not fly in their locality.</p>
