answer text <p>There has been a long term reduction in annual tobacco duty receipts, driven by above-RPI increases in duty and changing attitudes to smoking. As shown in the published Tobacco Bulletin July 2018.</p><p> </p><p>In their November 2016 Economic and fiscal outlook the Office of Budget Responsibility revised their estimates of the underlying downward trend in clearances of tobacco. This was to account for various factors including weakness in tobacco receipts and the expected effects of the Tobacco Products Directive. Paragraph 4.75 noted that the effect on receipts from the introduction of standardised tobacco packaging is assumed to be captured by this downward trend in clearances across the forecast period.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The National Living Wage (NLW) is applicable for those aged 25 or older and will increase in April 2019 to £8.21 per hour. This will see a full-time NLW worker’s earnings increase by over £2,750 compared to its introduction</p><p> </p><p>April 2019’s rate increase is following recommendations from the independent and expert Low Pay Commission (LPC). The detailed assessment made by the LPC in reaching this recommended rate will be found in their Autumn 2018 report, which will be published in due course.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally, the Low Pay Commission also provide recommendations on the youth-related National Minimum Wage (NMW) rates. In April 2019, the NMW for 21-24 year olds will rise to £7.70, the 18-20 year olds’ rate will rise to £6.15, the 16-17 year olds’ rate will rise to £4.35 and the Apprentices’ rate will rise to £3.90. The Low Pay Commission is asked to recommend these rates such that they do not damage the employment prospects of younger workers. Indeed, we have seen youth unemployment (16-24 year olds) decrease by 462,000 workers since 2010.</p>

answer text <p>The UK is strongly committed to the promotion of media freedom and the protection of journalists. We are concerned at how many countries are increasingly using restrictive laws to stifle freedom of expression and prevent the function of an independent media. The Forreign Secretary and other Ministers at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have raised, and will continue to raise, the safety of journalists and media freedom in bilateral exchanges and visits. We most recently did so with counterparts over incidents in the Middle East, Africa and Asia in November 2018. The UK will host an international conference in 2019 in London on media freedom, aimed at mobilising a stronger consensus behind the protection of journalists.</p> more like this

answer text <p>In October 2016, the UK acted decisively and on an exceptional basis at the time of the Calais camp clearance to remove 769 vulnerable unaccompanied children from a dangerous situation where they were at risk of violence and abuse. Our action at that time resulted in 220 children being relocated to the UK under section 67 of the Immigration Act 2016, and the remaining 549 children being transferred to reunite with family members already in the UK.</p><p>Following the clearance of the camp, the French authorities arranged for the children who had previously been there to be moved to specialist reception centres around France. Children who could not be transferred to the UK and who remained in France were transferred into the French care system.</p><p>We are continuing to work closely with French authorities and non-governmental organisations in France to support the identification and transfer of eligible children to the UK under Dublin. We have allocated a £3.6 million Dublin development fund, as part of the Sandhurst Treaty signed between the UK and France in January 2018, to identify projects to support eligible claims through the asylum process and ensure those who are ineligible for transfer to the UK are informed of their options. The Treaty also includes a commitment to reduce timescales for decisions and transfers under Dublin. A UK asylum liaison officer has been deployed to France to support the process.</p><p>Responsibility for unaccompanied children on French territory lies with the French authorities, however France is bound by many of the same international obligations as the UK. Children have access to day centres where they can access support and information about the French asylum procedures.</p>

answer text <p>The UK is firmly committed to ensuring aid reaches the most vulnerable, including those from religious minorities, where they constitute part of that category. We conduct regular assessments through a range of sources to ensure assistance is provided in conformity with the international humanitarian principles of neutrality and impartiality.</p><p> </p><p>UK funding is distributed on the basis of need to ensure that civilians are not discriminated against on the grounds of race, religion or ethnicity. DFID does not identify or record beneficiaries by their religion and ethnicity and does not plan to collect disaggregated population data on minority groups. Our partners carry out comprehensive vulnerability assessments to ensure aid is reaching those most in need, and we are confident that minorities, including faith communities, are not overlooked in this process.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The misuse of drugs in prison drives violence, vulnerability and crime and so tackling this is one of our top priorities. We do not have statistics to demonstrate a causal link between illicit phones and drug misuse but we know that illicit mobile phones can be used for a variety of harmful purposes by criminals in prison, including to organise the supply of drugs. The use of mobile phones in prisons is an important cog in the infrastructure that supports and fuels crime and violence. Consequently, we are improving our security to restrict the availability of both drugs and mobile phones. We use body, property, cell and area searches, metal-detecting scanners and drug and phone detection dogs across the estate. We have recently invested an additional £7 million in modern technology, including extending the use of phone blocking technology and improved searching techniques. We are also investing £6 million to tackle drug supply and reduce demand in 10 of the most challenging prisons, with body scanners and more staff focused on effective searching.</p><p>To reduce the demand for illicit mobile phones, we are also expanding the roll-out of in-cell telephones. Currently, 20 public sector prisons have in-cell phones. We are now investing a further £10 million to roll-out in-cell phones to a further 30 prisons by March 2020. Calls can only be made to pre-agreed numbers and can be monitored, with governors able to remove phones from those who misuse them. We know that maintaining prisoners’ family ties is hugely important too, with prisoners who receive contact from their family while in prison 39% less likely to reoffend. This will enable prisoners to maintain relationships with their family and access talking support services, in a managed and secure way, while we continue to take action to restrict the supply of illicit phones.</p>

answer text <p>Over recent years, we have noted a shrinking of public space in Tanzania through increased restrictions on the activities of civil society organisations, political parties and the media. Respect for human rights and the rule of law have been repeatedly undermined. We have made our concerns about this known to the Government of Tanzania at both Ministerial and official level. The UK is fully committed to the promotion of media freedom and the protection of journalists. The Foreign Secretary announced on 31 October 2018 the launch of an international campaign on media freedom and that the UK will host an International Conference aimed at promoting the value and benefits of a free media and to mobilise an international consensus on the protection of journalists as the guardians of our freedoms.</p> more like this
