star this property answer text <p>While we condemn the violent behaviour of some protestors, and unlawful acts such as arson and looting, we are deeply concerned that Zimbabwe’s security forces have acted disproportionately in response. In particular, there are disturbing reports of use of live ammunition, intimidation and excessive force. On 17 January I summoned the Zimbabwean Ambassador to highlight our concern at the ongoing situation in Zimbabwe.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is playing a leading role in seeking a political solution to end the conflict and incalculable suffering in Yemen. On 16 January, the UN Security Council voted unanimously to back the UK-led resolution which bolsters the UN Yemen peace process. It will establish a six month UN mission to monitor the Hodeidah ceasefire. The ceasefire is an important step towards peace but by no means guaranteed. It is therefore vital that all parties act in good faith and take urgent steps to implement these agreements.</p> more like this

Only yesterday 25 members of the National Guard revolted against Maduro's leadership. In October 2018, speaking at Chatham House, I called for a concerted regional and global response to what has become a man-made regional crisis. The UK is standing alongside American, EU and Lima Group partners to ensure a robust response to the crisis; all options remain open including further targeted sanctions.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Prevention is at the heart of the NHS Long Term Plan for England, which is backed by a £20.5 billion per year increase in funding for the NHS in England by 2023/24. Immunisation is a key preventative measure and the Long Term Plan commits to prioritising improvements in childhood immunisation and immunisation uptake, and to reviewing funding of general practitioner-delivered immunisations in England. The Department will work with NHS England and Public Health England to ensure that sufficient funding is allocated to fulfil these commitments.</p><p> </p><p>The immunisation programme is demand-led and funding for vaccination programmes (including the cost of vaccines) in England is estimated as part of the Department’s Spending Review process. We are committed to ensuring immunisation remains adequately funded under the next Spending Review, reflecting that prevention is one of the priorities set out by my Rt. Hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.</p><p> </p><p>Health is a devolved matter. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advises United Kingdom health departments on vaccinations. The Health Protection (Vaccination) Regulations 2009 place a duty on the Secretary of State for Health in England to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable and subject to specified criteria, that the recommendations of JCVI are implemented.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In the 2018 Autumn Budget, we committed to allowing DWP income-related legacy benefits to continue for two-weeks after a claim has been made to Universal Credit from July 2020. This measure will give around 1.1 million households a one-off gain of approximately £200 between 2020/21 and 2023/24.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has committed to supporting all claimants who are moved on to Universal Credit as part of the managed migration process. The draft regulations, currently before Parliament, will deliver on our commitment to provide transitional protection to those who are managed migrated onto Universal Credit without a change in their circumstances. The Department already offers a range of support to claimants who migrate to Universal Credit, such as advances worth up to 100 per cent of their indicative award. Claimants may also be eligible for the two-week Universal Credit Transitional Housing Payment.</p><p> </p><p>The Department will be introducing a Discretionary Hardship Payment to support those claimants who will be managed migrated as part of the pilot phase. The power for Discretionary Hardship Payments is broad and could be used to pay the equivalent of the two-week legacy run on to the 10,000 claimants who will be moved to Universal Credit as part of the piloting phase and who are in hardship on account of the absence of the run on. We will also have the discretion to make payments if any other issues related to managed migration have resulted in hardship.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Universal Credit is a means tested system of support and where claimants have income available to meet their everyday living costs, such as maternity allowance, it is right that their entitlement to UC is adjusted accordingly (as currently is the case with other DWP legacy means tested working age benefits).</p><p> </p><p>Statutory maternity pay is paid by an employer and is a form of earnings.
