We have agreed that as the United Kingdom leaves the European Union we will work quickly to establish a new economic partnership between Japan and the UK based on the final terms of the Japan-EU Economic Partnership Agreement. The UK is clear that it wants a smooth and orderly transition to its new relationship with the EU and our key partners, including Japan. The UK welcomes the many high value and high profile Japanese investments in the UK, and will work closely with Japanese business and government to build on these investments in future</p><p> </p><p>The Government is undertaking a wide range of analysis looking at the implications of UK withdrawal from the EU.

star this property answer text <p>Provisions in the current regulatory framework of the European Union do not specifically inhibit our present requirements for the development of new stem cell technology.</p><p>The United Kingdom and the EU start from a position of close regulatory alignment. As part of exit negotiations, the UK Government will discuss with the EU and Member States on how best to continue cooperation in the field of research, including clinical trials, medicines and medical devices, and data sharing, to ensure patient safety and public health.</p><p>As my Rt. hon. Friend the Prime Minister stated in her speech on our future economic partnership with the European Union last Friday, the UK will need to make a strong commitment that its regulatory standards will remain as high as the EU’s. That commitment, in practice, will mean that UK and EU regulatory standards will remain substantially similar in the future. Our default is that UK law may not necessarily be identical to EU law, but it should achieve the same outcomes.</p><p>As my Rt. hon. Friends the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care and the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy have stated previously, we have three principles which will help us rise to the challenge of developing a new regulatory system post Brexit:</p><p>- patients should not be disadvantaged;</p><p>- innovators should be able to get their products into the UK market as quickly and simply as possible; and</p><p>- the UK continues to play a leading role promoting public health.</p>

While we welcome progress made by Israel following the recommendations of the Children in Military Custody Report, we remain particularly concerned by reports of the continued heavy use of painful restraints and the high number of Palestinian children who are not informed of their legal rights, in contravention to Israel’s own regulations. We will continue to push for the implementation of the recommendations in full, and we continue to offer support to Israel through expert level talks.</p> more like this
