answer text <p>57 countries have adopted the London 2018 Declaration committing to action to protect endangered species around the globe, with more expected to sign. This important pledge of international action reflects the success of the Illegal Wildlife Trade Conference in London in October, which was attended by more than 70 countries and more than 400 organisations. The conference focused the minds of international governments on the issue and energized global cooperation to fight the illegal wildlife trade. We will continue to work with our international partners to make progress on commitments pledged at the event.</p><p>We do not have direct information on the likely impact that action by the 57 countries who adopted the London <ins class="ministerial">2018 </ins>Declaration will have on endangered species, but the growing number of signatories <ins class="ministerial">signifies </ins>growing global ambition to <del class="ministerial">funding</del> <ins class="ministerial">tackling </ins>the illegal wildlife trade, which will increase the protection for <del class="ministerial">endagered</del> <ins class="ministerial">endangered </ins>species.</p>

The Prime Minister has been clear that, in any scenario, there is no question of asking EU citizens resident here to leave. On 21 September, the Prime Minister confirmed that, in the event of no deal, all EU citizens resident in the UK before 29 March 2019 will be able to stay, their rights will be protected, and they will be able to live their lives broadly as they do now.</p><p>On 30 October, the Prime Minister extended that commitment to citizens of Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein; and we are close to reaching an agreement with Switzerland. We will set out further details shortly, so those affected can have the clarity and certainty they need.</p> more like this
