The Department is continually assessing and identifying ways to improve the culture of the workplace, reduce tolerance of inappropriate behaviour further, including bullying and harassment, and making it easier for staff to report possible misconduct as well as providing more support to staff who have experienced it, and providing more effective and quicker routes to resolution.</p><p> </p><p>The MOD has introduced a ‘SpeakSafe Helpline’ offering MOD employees a safe space to discuss issues relating to bullying, harassment and discrimination in the workplace with experienced practitioners, outside of their immediate workplace, who will offer advice and support. The SpeakSafe service is impartial and confidential, allowing callers to remain anonymous, if they wish.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Sovereign Base Areas (SBA) Administration continues to make significant efforts to prevent the trapping and killing of wild birds in the Sovereign Base Areas of Cyprus, using increased enforcement and denial of trapping opportunities. These were recently recognised by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and BirdLife Cyprus, with an estimated 70% reduction in bird trapping in the SBA last year and a significant decrease in bird deaths from 880,000 in 2016 to 121,000 in 2018. The SBA Police continues to seek improved evidence collection using enhanced surveillance equipment, resulting in greater fixed penalty notices or court sentences. The programme of seizing bird trapping equipment continues, as will the extensive patrolling by the SBA Police during the migratory seasons. The SBA Administration will remove piping laid by bird trappers to illegally irrigate invasive acacia trees used to attract birds. To-date, approximately 89 kilometres of irrigation piping within the Cape Pyla range area in the Dhekelia SBA has been removed, which has resulted in significant die-back of acacia trees. Subject to assessments on safety and security, acacia trees will also continue to be removed from the Special Areas of Conservation in the SBA. The SBA Administration is also developing a management plan for Cape Pyla, which will examine the opportunities to improve habitat management for the migratory birds and explore any eco-tourism initiatives that might arise. All opportunities will be taken to enhance the excellent cooperation between the SBA Administration, the RSPB, BirdLife Cyprus and other NGOs involved in preventing illegal bird trapping.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Along with NATO Allies, we strongly support the US findings that Russia's development and deployment of its SSC-8 cruise missile system amounts to a material breach of the INF Treaty. This reflects a broader pattern of Russian behaviour that is intended to weaken the overall Euro-Atlantic security architecture. The Treaty's six-month withdrawal process offers Russia a final opportunity to return to full and verified compliance and respect its Treaty obligations.</p><p>The UK is engaged with NATO to assess the military implications for NATO in the event that Russia does not return to verifiable compliance. We remain confident in our capabilities and our ability to effectively deter and defend against Russian attempts to undermine Euro-Atlantic security. We will continue to consult regularly with Allies to keep the fielding of Russian intermediate range missiles under close review. NATO Allies reaffirmed this position on 2 February 2019.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
