star this property answer text <p>The detail of the UK’s association to the EU Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation &amp; restriction of Chemicals programme after the UK leaves the EU is part of ongoing negotiations. The UK and the EU have a mutual interest in maintaining our integrated chemical supply chains as the chemicals industry is an economically significant sector in both regions, and it underpins key downstream sectors including automotive, aerospace, construction and pharmaceuticals. In the White Paper on our future relationship with the European Union published in July, the UK has proposed that chemicals are part of a UK-EU free trade area on goods, with continued UK participation in the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) underpinning this arrangement. This proposal is part of ongoing negotiation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As the Secretary of State for Defence announced in October 2018, all roles in the military have now been opened to women. In addition, the Armed Forces (Flexible Working) Act 2018, which received Royal Assent in February 2018, enables Service personnel to apply for flexible service. Secondary legislation and preparation for project implementation is under way with the launch planned for April 2019. These changes pave the way to a greater mix of working arrangements and are expected to increase the diversity of our Armed Forces and build on our reputation as an equal opportunities employer.</p><p>Defence is dedicated to achieving a more diverse workforce and is undertaking a wide range of activities to increase the number of female recruits into the Armed Forces. The Armed Forces are working towards a target of 15% female recruitment by 2020. This challenging target reflects the importance Defence places on having Armed Forces that better reflect the society they serve. Work to increase female representation includes better understanding and greater engagement with females, reviewing recruitment processes; and better targeted marketing and communications towards potential female applicants.</p><p>The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has also undertaken a number of actions aimed at increasing gender equality within the Armed Forces. This includes incorporating gender issues into relevant Armed Forces doctrine and pre-deployment training. The Armed Forces undertake mandatory diversity and inclusion training on entry into service and every two years. Equality and diversity advisors are also embedded within each unit. Each service has a senior gender advocate and a servicewomen's network to improve access and opportunities for women.</p><p>For civil servants the MOD contributes to and fully supports the Civil Service schemes 'Crossing Thresholds' and 'Positive Action Pathway', both of which either fully or in part seek to promote gender equality in career development. Since 2016, 57 women from MOD have participated in Crossing Thresholds; and 178 civilians (BAME, Women, Disabled and LGBT) have taken part in Positive Action Pathway.</p>

star this property answer text <p>​The FCO's departmental allocation supports a range of programme work supporting policy priorities including gender equality. Within this area, there is a particular focus on Women, Peace and Security, Sexual Exploitation and Abuse, Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict, Girls' Education and LGBT rights. The programme is agile and adaptive so the number of projects is not static.</p><p>In addition, the Commonwealth Fund operated by the FCO 2018-2020 funds two two-year programmes: the network of Women Mediators across the Commonwealth (£1.6m) and a programme to provide support to Commonwealth governments looking to reform legislation that disproportionately affects women and girls and LGBT people (£5.6m).</p><p>FCO arms-length bodies, such as the British Council, the BBC World Service, and the Chevening Scholarships Programme, also support gender equality. The FCO's delivery of programmes under the NSC's larger Conflict Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) also contribute to gender equality. All ODA programmes comply with the International Development (Gender Equality) Act (2014).</p>

star this property answer text <p>​The Foreign Secretary has made clear that referring the situation in Burma to the International Criminal Court (ICC) is an option the UN Security Council (UNSC) should consider. The UK ensured the Head of the UN Fact Finding Mission was able to brief the UNSC on 24 October to inform the Council's discussions. However, our assessment remains that there is insufficient support amongst Security Council members for an ICC referral at this time. It will not advance the cause of accountability for an ICC referral to fail to win Security Council support or to be vetoed; such a result would only give comfort to the Burmese military and reduce the pressure they currently face.</p> more like this
