star this property answer text <p>The Department for Education were responsible for data collection from local child death reviews prior to the policy transferring to the Department of Health and Social Care in July 2018. The child death review data collection is not a child level data collection. It is an aggregate collection at local level, so these further breakdowns cannot be provided. Whilst some information is collected at a local level on whether deaths were related to gang violence, numbers are very small and would be suppressed. It has not been possible to determine how many of the child death reviews in this category led to a serious case review, nor to provide a reliable estimate of how many were related to gang violence.</p> more like this

We strongly support the mediation efforts of the international community led by Egypt and the UN and urge continued talks aimed at finding an enduring peace in Gaza. In order to protect civilians it is crucial a ceasefire is agreed and maintained as part of a political process that sees the Palestinian Authority return to Gaza and the lifting of restrictions on the Gazan people and economy.</p> more like this
