unstar this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Government takes all allegations of mistreatment or torture extremely seriously. We have raised Mr Adorus’ allegations of mistreatment during his detention in Ethiopia on numerous occasions, including at Ministerial level. The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my hon. Friend the Member for Boston and Skegness (Mr Simmonds), spoke with Foreign Minister Tedros about the case on 11 July. We have reminded the Ethiopian government of its obligations under the Convention against Torture, to which it is a signatory, to follow up on allegations through an independent, impartial and transparent investigation. We will continue to do so and provide all appropriate consular support to Mr Adorus, raising any welfare issues with the Ethiopian authorities to ensure that he is properly looked after.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The British Government consistently and unreservedly condemns torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment and punishment, and it is a priority for us to combat it wherever and whenever it occurs. In my statement on 26 June to mark International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, I reaffirmed the UK's commitment to combat torture and encourage states to ratify the Convention against Torture: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/foreign-office-marks-international-day-in-support-of-victims-of-torture-2014" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/foreign-office-marks-international-day-in-support-of-victims-of-torture-2014</a>. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office Strategy for the Prevention of Torture, published in October 2011, further sets out our work in this field and applies globally.</p><p>The policy of the British Government is clear: we do not participate in, solicit or encourage the use of torture or cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment or punishment. We neither condone such activity, nor do we ask others to do it on our behalf. We remain committed to ensuring that any allegations of UK involvement in torture are treated seriously, examined thoroughly and can be investigated by the police with full co-operation from the British Government.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK is deeply concerned by reports of the abduction of Kurdish children by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Such actions are utterly appalling and we call for their immediate release. These actions demonstrate to the world the true nature of this vicious terrorist organisation.</p><p>Tackling extremists in Syria is a priority, and we are stepping up our support for the moderate opposition groups who are fighting them, and helping the neighbouring countries respond to this growing security threat. Finding a political settlement to the crisis is more pressing than ever, so that groups such as ISIL cannot take advantage of the conflict to expand their influence.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p> </p><p>In 2013-2014 DFID Pakistan bilateral aid expenditure was approximately £253 million, of which £18 million was spent through multilateral agencies. The 2013-14 DFID Annual report will be published on our website on 15 July, detailing our confirmed figures. Further information on centrally-managed UK aid spending delivered through multilaterals operating in Pakistan is available at: <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/statistics-on-international-development-2013" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/statistics-on-international-development-2013</a>.</p><p> </p><p>For 2014-2015 DFID Pakistan has been allocated £310 million. This is subject to project performance as well as continued progress with key policy reforms, including on tax. Current plans suggest that £10 million of this will be spent through multilateral agencies. For future years the resource allocation process is underway and no specific budgets have yet been agreed.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p> </p><p>The UK is helping to support Pakistan’s efforts to increase revenue collection through a range of measures, including through expertise from HM Revenue and Customs. The Government of Pakistan has already made progress including removing tax exemptions worth 0.34% of GDP and publishing a directory of all taxpayers. It published its second federal budget on 3 June which included further emphasis on increasing revenue from 9% to 15% of GDP by 2018, through new measures to widen the tax net and phase out exemptions. Through these the government aims to raise additional revenue of over $2.2 billion in 2014/15.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>It has also committed to increase the share of GDP spent on education from 2% to 4% by 2018. This will help to get some of the estimated 12 million out-of-school children across the country into education.</p><p> </p> more like this
