star this property answer text <p>The Foreign Secretary visited Burma in September, including Rakhine. The situation is grave. He met Aung San Suu Kyi and told her clear accountability for those responsible for atrocities was critical. The UK initiated the EU’s new sanctions on seven military commanders and a strengthened arms embargo. The Foreign Secretary told the Foreign Affairs Council we would likely need to take further action in response to the UN Fact Finding Mission report. We are now discussing options for further EU sanctions with member states, including whether to sanction the Commander-in-Chief and his Deputy.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Public Health England’s (PHE) Be Clear on Cancer campaigns are designed to raise the public’s awareness of specific cancer symptoms, encourage people with those symptoms to go to the doctor and diagnose cancer at an earlier stage. An early visit to a general practice can make a cancer more treatable, and thereby improve cancer survival rates. These campaigns are delivered by PHE in partnership with the Department and NHS England. There are a number of cancers, including those where symptoms can be non-specific, which are not covered by ‘Be Clear on Cancer’ explicitly.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In the period in question, the major National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funding for biomedical research was through its Biomedical Research Centres and Units. These support research funded by the NIHR itself and also research funded by other public, charity and industry research funders. The level of funding for biomedical research into chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) for each financial year can be found in the table below. The funding for this research came from a combination of funders.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Financial Year</p></td><td><p>£</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>280,442</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>295,626</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>130,958</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) provides the infrastructure that allows high-quality clinical research funded by charities, research funders and life-sciences industry to be undertaken throughout the National Health Service. The level of funding for biomedical research into CFS/ME for each financial year can be found in the table below. The funding for this research came from a combination of the NIHR, the Medical Research Council (MRC) and medical research charities. Expenditure from the CRN coordinating centre itself is also outlined below:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Financial Year</p></td><td><p>CRN funding for research, £</p></td><td><p>Coordinating expenditure, £</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>134,769</p></td><td><p>17,485</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>125,176</p></td><td><p>17,796</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>82,866</p></td><td><p>7,821</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The MRC spend on research directly relating to CFS/ME can be found in the following table. Research into CFS/ME is a continuing priority for the MRC.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Financial Year</p></td><td><p>£</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>652,044</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>287,234</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>286,197</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The NIHR and the MRC welcomes funding applications for research into any aspect of human health, including biomedical research into CFS/ME. It is not usual practice to ring-fence funds for particular topics or conditions. Applications are subject to peer review and judged in open competition, with awards being made on the basis of the importance of the topic to patients and health and care services, value for money and scientific quality. On this basis, it is not possible to say how much funding is planned in the current financial year.</p><p> </p><p>The NIHR recognises that CFS/ME is a debilitating condition and is speaking with the United Kingdom CFS/ME Research Collaborative and patient representatives about how best we can support a joined up approach to high quality research into this complex disorder.</p>
