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

Since 2011 we have supported 47 million people to cope with the effects of climate change, and 17 million to access clean energy.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is playing a strong role in ensuring developed countries fulfil the collective commitment to mobilise $100 billion in climate finance by 2020 from public and private sources. For DFID a key part of this is working with the multilateral agencies which DFID funds, most notably the World Bank and Regional Development Banks, so that they make their best contribution to tackling climate change effectively.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The information required to answer this question is not held centrally, and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost. Whilst it is safe to say that DFID Staff Members currently loaned to FCO have joint reporting responsibilities between DFID and FCO due to the nature of those relationships, we are unable to provide further information on staff more broadly. Each DFID Employee has one primary reporting line within DFID and it is information about those reporting relationships which is captured centrally. Some staff may have a secondary reporting line in to FCO but such relationships are managed at a local level and, as such, to draw that information from each individual department within DFID would involve disproportionate costs.</p> more like this

We agree with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) that the conditions for returns do not yet exist. The UK continues to raise our concerns at the highest levels with both military and civilian Ministers in the Government of Burma. The UK and the UN Security Council have been clear, we want both Burma and Bangladesh to take solid and constructive steps to create the conditions that will allow the Rohingya to return safely, voluntarily and with dignity to Rakhine state. The Rohingya need to be well-informed about the situation they may return to, and there needs to be independent international monitoring of any returns.</p> more like this
