star this property answer text <p>Universal Credit is more generous in terms of childcare costs with an increased level of support, from 70 per cent with legacy benefits to 85 per cent within Universal Credit.</p><p> </p><p>We recognise that the upfront cost of childcare may cause some claimants financial difficulty. Consequently, the Secretary of State announced in her speech of 11 January 2019, that where the initial month’s childcare costs may prevent a claimant from starting work, Jobcentres have been instructed to use the Flexible Support Fund where possible, to enable a smoother transition.</p><p> </p><p>The Government now provides more support than ever before to help parents with the costs of childcare, including providing 15 hours a week of free childcare in England for all 3 and 4 year olds and disadvantaged 2 year olds, and doubling free childcare available for working parents of 3 and 4 year olds to 30 hours a week.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The United Kingdom has been working with Bahrain’s independent human rights oversight bodies since their creation following recommendations from the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry in 2012. Our work has supported the building of effective institutions in order to carry out their set mandates. While these bodies still have more to do, they have already demonstrated their abilities including through the prosecution of over 80 police officers accused of human rights abuses.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Freedom of the media is an essential quality of any functioning democracy. People must be allowed to discuss and debate issues freely, to challenge their governments, and to make considered decisions, informed by a strong and robust media. We therefore condemn the decision made by the Government of Burundi to revoke the BBC's operating license, particularly in light of the 2020 elections for which a free and independent media is vital. We strongly support the BBC's mission to bring high quality and impartial news to global audiences, including where free speech is limited. The Foreign Secretary has tweeted his disappointment and has urged the Government to reverse this decision. The UK Ambassador to Burundi and the UK Special Envoy to the Great Lakes are making representations to senior counterparts.</p> more like this
