star this property answer text <p>I am appalled by the ethnic cleansing and persecution of the Rohingya, including reports of the Burmese military and local militia forcing hundreds of thousands of men, women and children from their homes and villages being burnt. The relentless denial of aid is a matter of life and death for those still in northern Rakhine. I have repeatedly called on the Burmese authorities to stop the violence in Rakhine state, and to allow full and unfettered humanitarian access to provide a lifeline to all those living in Rakhine State. Government officials continue to raise this at the highest levels with the Burmese Government.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>I’ve spoken to the Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary and reiterated the UK’s commitment to relieve the plight of the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. The issue is a complex one, but the UK has not shied away from its responsibility and we are working closely with the Government of Bangladesh to provide life-saving assistance to thousands of displaced men, women and children. Our initial support is already enabling food to reach 65,000 refugees, health care for 50,000, and emergency shelter for more than 26,000. We are also supporting 7,500 children, many of whom are at risk of sexual violence and trafficking.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As we set out in the trade White Paper, ‘Preparing for our future trade policy’, published on 9 October, we will introduce legislation so the UK is ready to put in place a trade preferences scheme as we leave the EU. This will, as a minimum, provide the same level of access as the current EU trade preference scheme. It means that around 48 least developed countries across the globe will continue to benefit from duty-free exports into the UK on all goods, other than arms and ammunition.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development’s Development Assistance Committee, of which the UK is a member, sets the rules that determine what aid counts as Official Development Assistance (ODA). Only spending that complies with these rules is recognised as counting towards the United Nations’ 0.7% of gross national income target for ODA to which the UK is committed. That commitment is enshrined in the International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Act 2015.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK Government recognises the vulnerability of religious minorities in Iraq. DFID’s funding for Iraq and host countries of Iraqi refugees is based on humanitarian principles of neutrality and impartiality; and we aim to ensure that no one is excluded or discriminated against on the grounds of race, ethnicity, or religion, that the specific risks facing minorities are addressed and that our assistance reaches those who need it most, including vulnerable people from minority communities such as Yazidis, Shia and Christians. DFID regularly challenges our partners in Iraq and host countries of Iraqi refugees to demonstrate that they are doing all they can to meet the needs of the most vulnerable people, including those from religious minorities. We welcome information from all sources to help us to hold them to account.</p> more like this
