star this property answer text <p>Published Home Office immigration statistics record data on all people coming to the UK or remaining here who are subject to immigration control. This includes all non-EU students.</p><p>International students are also included in net migration statistics that are produced by the independent Office for National Statistics (ONS). In line with the internationally agreed UN definition, these statistics define a migrant as someone changing their normal place of residence for more than a year. Students are therefore included in the same way as other migrants. Other countries, such as the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand also include students in their net migration figures.</p><p>The ONS has recently improved its methodology so that it is possible to better identify students in the emigration flows to give a more accurate measure of the contribution of students to overall net migration. In the last year, 121,000 non-EU students came to Britain to stay for more than 12 months, and the ONS estimates that only 51,000 left the country.</p><p>All migrants who are in the UK for 12 months or more have an impact on our communities, infrastructure and public services. Changing the way we measure migration would not make any difference to our student migration policy. There is no cap on the number who can come to the UK. Those who are sponsored by a reputable institution, have the right qualifications and sufficient funds to support themselves and can speak adequate English can study here. Britain remains the second most popular destination for international higher education students. The latest figures show visa applications from university students increased by 2%, and visa applications for the Russell Group universities are up 4% for the year ending September 2014.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>There was general agreement at the workshop that payment differentials was a complex issue and that any changes to the rules would create winners or losers with no clear benefit to vulnerable groups. For example, of households who were fuel poor in England in 2012, around 48% paid for their electricity and 40% paid for their gas through direct debit and around 27% paid for their electricity and 20% paid for their gas through prepayment meters. Changing rules in favour of pre-payment meter customers would make direct debit customers worse-off.</p><p>Ofgem intend to circulate a note from the event to participants within the next week. As part of their ongoing work programme on vulnerability, they are planning a series of workshops to focus on other important issues in the future.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Syrian Vulnerable Persons Relocation (VPR) scheme is based on need rather than fulfilling a set quota; it is designed to help the most vulnerable displaced Syrians who cannot be supported effectively in the region, and prioritises women and children at risk, survivors of torture and violence and those in need of medical care.</p><p>However, we have said that we expect the scheme to help several hundred people over three years, and we remain on track to deliver that commitment. 50 people were relocated to the UK under the scheme between the first group of arrivals on 25 March and the end of June. (This is the latest publicly available figure, as numbers are released as part of the publication of Home Office official statistics each quarter; the number of arrivals under the scheme up to September 2014 will be published on 27 November.) Groups are arriving in the UK on a regular basis, and we continue to work closely with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to identify Syrian refugees who are most at risk and schedule their relocation to the UK. Given the vulnerability of beneficiaries of the scheme, it is essential that the specific support they need is available when they arrive, and we also continue to work with local authorities and partners in the UK to ensure this is in place.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text We deplore all incitement to violence and continually urge the leadership of both the Palestinian and Israeli authorities to avoid engaging in, or encouraging, the type of action and language which will make it more difficult to achieve a peaceful negotiated solution to the conflict. An independent US-funded study of Palestinian and Israeli textbooks found, in line with previous studies, that there was very little evidence of Palestinian Authority textbooks inciting hatred of Israel or anti-semitism even if it found that both Palestinian and Israel textbooks needed to do more to promote a positive portrayal of each other. more like this
