star this property answer text <p>In the last three years the UK has provided over 1,000 working days to support missions coordinated by the European Asylum Support Office (EASO) to other Member States under pressure. This is more than any other EU Member State. In addition, we continue to fund via the UNHCR asylum expertise to the Greek asylum system and support a programme of assisted voluntary return of illegal migrants.</p><p>We also support the European Commission’s proposals for 'Hot Spot' screening centres. These centres will help ensure that migrants are registered and fingerprinted at pressure points on the EU external border and that refugees are identified and protected quickly, while those with no need of protection can be returned immediately. We are discussing with EASO and Frontex how best we can contribute.</p><p>We have created a multi-agency 90-strong team from the National Crime Agency (NCA), Border Force, Immigration Enforcement and the CPS to fight the criminal gangs that are exploiting vulnerable people and are working closely with Europol to strengthen its operation to tackle organised crime groups involved in smuggling people across sea and land routes. We are focusing on tracking vessels in the Mediterranean and bringing together intelligence from EU and Europol partners to target these criminals.</p><p>We continue to support Frontex operations in the Mediterranean by providing debriefing and nationality screening experts to Operations Triton and Poseidon. The UK has an outstanding offer of additional debriefing and nationality screening experts which was made to Frontex during August. We are currently awaiting directions from Frontex as to where this resource may best be utilised.</p><p>The UK is excluded from the Frontex Regulation on Schengen-building grounds. Therefore our officers participate in Frontex joint operations and other activities with the agreement of the Management Board on a case-by-case basis in an observational/advisory role.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Syrian Vulnerable Persons' Relocation scheme was launched in January 2014 and is the first resettlement programme in the UK to target support for refugees specifically on the basis of their vulnerability. It is helping those in the greatest need, including people requiring urgent medical treatment, survivors of violence and torture, and women and children at risk.</p><p>Since the first arrivals in March 2014, 216 individuals have been resettled in the United Kingdom. Statistics on arrivals under the scheme are published through our official statistics at quarterly intervals and include numbers to the year ending June 2015. These will be available from: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/immigration-statistics-quarterly-release" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/immigration-statistics-quarterly-release</a></p><p>Up to the end of August 2015, the Home Office’s expenditure on the Vulnerable Persons’ Relocation Scheme has been £1.13m.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government believes that carbon capture usage and storage (CCUS) has the potential to play an important role in meeting the UK’s climate targets. CCUS can add value to the economy and help tackle hard to decarbonise sectors.</p><p> </p><p>Our CCUS Action Plan is designed to progress CCUS in the UK, including enabling the UK’s first CCUS facility to be operational from the mid-2020s. CCUS is also likely to play an important role in achieving our Industrial Clusters Mission, creating the world’s first net-zero industrial cluster by 2040.</p><p> </p><p>In progressing CCUS, the UK has already established a robust regulatory framework for CCUS, with regulations applying to licensing, environmental inspection and CO<sub>2</sub> storage, operation and monitoring activities. This means that any CCUS project will need to comply with a rigorous health and safety assessment and require permits and approval from relevant environment agencies, the Health and Safety Executive and the Oil and Gas Authority.</p>
