star this property answer text <p>Human rights remain a priority for our engagement on Sudan. Since the removal of President Bashir, and the establishment of a Transitional Military Council, the UK has ensured that the situation in Sudan has been discussed at the highest levels, including at the UN Security Council and EU. We continue to engage with international counterparts across our diplomatic network to coordinate an international response that supports the people of Sudan. The Foreign Secretary spoke with Kenyan Cabinet secretary for Foreign Affairs on 3 May and Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs on 25 April on the importance of international partners’ engagement to support a swift transition to civilian rule. In addition, we have ongoing discussions with our Troika partners (US and Norway), collectively calling for a transition that is inclusive and respectful of human rights and the rule of law. We also continue to maintain pressure on the Sudanese authorities to respect the Sudanese people’s right to assembly and to avoid the use of violence.</p><p>​</p>

The Ethical Trading Initiative’s Base Code is an important standard for companies to aim for, which is why DFID has provided ETI with a £5.1M grant and is encouraging its suppliers to sign up to it.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Unemployment in Huddersfield is at its lowest since 2008. In February the Chancellor laid out his Long-term Economic Plan for Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire – a crucial step in building the Northern Powerhouse. The plan aims to raise the employment rate of Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire so that over 100,000 more people are in employment there during this Parliament. This will be achieved by backing business start-ups and business growth and investment, through projects like the new, Growth-Deal funded, Incubation and Innovation Centre at Huddersfield University which will support jobs growth in the advanced manufacturing and digital and creative sectors.</p> more like this
