star this property answer text <p>​We are gravely concerned by the escalation in military action by Russia and the Syrian regime in Idlib. We are appalled that civilian infrastructure has been hit, including 24 health facilities, and by reports of civilian casualties and mass displacement. We are using public statements, diplomatic relationships and international fora, including the UN Security Council, to increase the pressure on all parties to end the violence, return to the ceasefire agreed in September 2018 and abide by their obligations under international humanitarian law. Through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund, the UK is supporting innovative new technology that provides civilians in Idlib with early warnings of airstrikes in order to save lives. We also continue to support international efforts to document violations of international humanitarian law being committed in Idlib.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Prime Minister demonstrated the British Government's commitment to promoting freedom of religion or belief when in July this year she appointed me as her special envoy. The British Government sees International Religious Freedom Day on 27 October as an opportunity to reflect on the persecution suffered around the world by people due to their religion or beliefs; and to promote respect between communities<em>.</em> The British Government will mark the day on social media, and through an event jointly hosted by myself and Lord Bates on 7 November to mark the occasion. We will also use the occasion to re-issue the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's toolkit on Freedom of Religion or Belief to all of our overseas embassies and missions across our global network, and encourage them to promote and defend this important human right. Finally we are pleased that almost £1 million of funding has been allocated to pursue our freedom of religion or belief policy objectives through the Magna Carta Fund for Human Rights and Democracy.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The British Government is committed to supporting Greece's efforts to manage migration effectively, which includes working with the Greek Government to support the most vulnerable.</p><p>The Greek Government is continuing to reduce overcrowding by transferring vulnerable migrants and asylum seekers to accommodation that is more suitable on the mainland. On behalf of EU Member States, the EU Commission is working with, and pressing, the Greek authorities to speed up this process. This is alongside the Commission's continuing wider efforts to make overall improvements, including to the Greek appeals and returns processes.</p><p>The Government continues to offer support to alleviate the pressures on the islands and make sustainable improvements to the migration system. The Immigration Minister and Development Secretary visited the migrant camps last summer to assess the conditions and engage with the Greek authorities and other agencies on the ground. UK support includes the deployments of interpreters to the Greek Reception and Identification Service on the Greek islands. The interpreters help the Greek Government in processing arriving migrants, and specifically help facilitate the identification of migrants who are vulnerable to ensure they receive support as quickly as possible.</p><p>More widely, we have stepped up our efforts to enable the most vulnerable unaccompanied children, where it is in their best interest, to relocate from Europe to the UK, by removing the date criterion in the Dubs Amendment. This has meant that participating States such as Greece can now refer the most vulnerable children regardless of when they arrived into Europe.</p>
