unstar this property answer text <p><strong>The full public consultation on the ‘Moving around’ activity of the mobility component closed on 5 August 2013. We received more than 1,100 responses. We carefully considered all the responses received, including the suggestions for alternative approaches. We published our response to the consultation on 21 October 2013.</strong></p><br /><p><strong>We believe the assessment criteria, including the 20 metres distance, are the best way of identifying those whose physical mobility is most limited, so we did not make any changes. However, we have strengthened the measures around the reliability criteria – we recognise these are a key protection for claimants.</strong></p><br /><p><strong>Our response to the consultation is annexed to this answer.</strong></p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK cooperates closely with Turkey on migration and Turkey has consistently confirmed that their borders remain open to genuine refugees. We commend Turkey’s generosity in hosting over 2.2 million refugees from the crisis in Syria and Iraq. Enhanced cooperation between the EU and Turkey is critical to resolving the current migration crisis. At the EU-Turkey summit on 29 November, the EU agreed €3billion of additional support to Turkey to help ease its refugee burden and prevent further irregular migration to the EU. Turkey and the EU also agreed to activate the migration action plan. As part of this action plan, Turkey committed to accelerate procedures in order to readmit smoothly irregular migrants who are not in need of international protection, whilst ensuring that vulnerable people continue to be identified and taken care of.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The British Government is a strong supporter of Serbia and Kosovo’s respective EU paths, which are dependent on full normalisation of relations between the two countries. Progress requires full implementation of all agreements reached, including the Brussels Agreement of 19 April 2013, and is managed through the EU facilitated Dialogue. We make regular representations to encourage both governments to fully implement all agreements. Following a successful Dialogue meeting in August, the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond), issued a press statement on 26 August urging both Serbia and Kosovo to maintain this positive momentum. The Foreign Secretary also made clear that completing the implementation of all their agreements will be an important step towards normalising relations between the two countries and increasing regional stability and security.</p> more like this
