star this property answer text <p>Defra takes the welfare of donkeys and other equids very seriously and has taken an active role in global efforts to monitor and strengthen welfare standards for these species. This included contributing to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) Terrestrial Code chapter on <em>Welfare or Working Equids </em>adopted by OIE members in 2016, which provides species specific guidance to complement the general welfare principles applying to all animals. In addition we have contributed to the EU voluntary initiative developing guidance on responsible ownership and care of equidae. Influencing the raising of global standards through international fora can be an effective and sustainable way to address these issues across the world and therefore have a broader impact than bilateral meetings with particular countries. This is part of the Government’s strong commitment to strengthening welfare standards.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>This Government is committed to a sustainable solution to poverty in all its forms. This means a strong economy and a benefit system that supports employment and higher pay. Compared to 2010, there are over 3.6 million more people in work, 1 million fewer workless households and 667,000 fewer children in workless households.</p><p>Whilst we have always said that there are many reasons people use Food Banks, we have responded quickly to concerns about the early roll out of Universal Credit and made numerous improvements to ensure people get the money they need as soon as possible. New questions have been added to the Family Resources Survey to develop a food insecurity measure from 2021 to help better understand the drivers of food insecurity and identify which groups are most at risk.</p> more like this
