This information is recorded by the IRC service providers on their own internal detainee management systems and is used to inform the religious provision available at the IRC.</p><p>Due to the differing recording methods in place at each of the individual centres information on the religion of people detained in IRCs in each of the last five years could only be provided at disproportionate cost.</p> more like this

The Government’s policy remains that detention should be used only sparingly and for the shortest period necessary. Stephen Shaw is currently reviewing Home Office progress against his 2015 recommendations in relation to the welfare of vulnerable people in immigration detention and the Government will keep its policies under review accordingly.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Mandate plays an important part in facilitating the resettlement of refugees in various locations across the world. There is no specific quota or target for the number of people resettled via Mandate. The referral of cases (and the corresponding numbers of arrivals) under Mandate is dependent on the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) identifying cases which meet its criteria. This criteria can be found in the UNHCR Resettlement Handbook under the UK’s country chapter available at <a href="http://www.unhcr.org/40ee6fc04.html" target="_blank">http://www.unhcr.org/40ee6fc04.html</a><br>We publish a breakdown of arrivals under our resettlement schemes as part of the Immigration Statistics Quarterly Release, which was most recently updated on 30 November, however we do not publish a disaggregation of those resettled to immediate or extended family members.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government takes child trafficking extremely seriously and is determined to continue to take action to combat it. The Government will publish a safeguarding strategy for unaccompanied asylum seeking children by 1 May 2017. This will bring together a number of strands of ongoing work to develop a more holistic and comprehensive approach to safeguarding unaccompanied asylum seeking and refugee children.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, on 16 February 2017 the Home Secretary announced a range of measures to protect children including unaccompanied asylum seeking children, from the risk of trafficking. These measures included the launch of the Child Trafficking Protection Fund which will provide nearly £2.2m for projects protecting vulnerable children in the UK and overseas who are at risk of trafficking. In addition, the Government made clear its intention to roll out Independent Child Trafficking Advocates (ICTAs) in Wales, Hampshire and Greater Manchester ahead of full national rollout. ICTAs will provide specialist support and act in the best interests of trafficked children.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Delivery of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986, through the UK’s regulatory system, ensures that animal research and testing is carried out only where no practicable alternatives exist, and under controls which keep suffering to the minimum.</p><p>This is achieved through robustly applying the principles of the 3Rs (Replacement, Reduction and Refinement) which require that, in every research proposal, animals are replaced with non-animal alternatives wherever practicable; that the number of animals used is reduced to the minimum needed to achieve the results sought; and that, for those animals which must be used, procedures are refined as much as practicable to minimise their suffering.</p><p>All applications for animal research are assessed by Home Office Inspectors to assess the harms, benefits and likelihood of delivery, including the effective implementation of the 3Rs. A judgement is then made, in a harm benefit analysis, as to whether the likely harms are justified by the expected benefits. Only after completion of this process will the Home Office consider granting a licence for the proposed work to go ahead. Once a licence is granted, establishments are regularly inspected by Home Office inspectors for compliance with the terms of their licence and the legislation.</p>
