star this property answer text In March this year, the Government announced its intention to commence Section 36 of the Equality Act 2010 in its response to the Women and Equalities Select Committee report on disability and the built environment. The announcement made clear that further work on identifying and assessing any additional burdens on local authorities is first required before a commencement date can be given. We hope to make an announcement on timing of commencement of Section 36 of the Equality Act 2010 as soon as possible. more like this

star this property answer text <table><tbody><tr><td><p>Our reforms to probation mean we are now monitoring around 40,000 offenders who would previously have been released with no supervision at all. We have seen a reduction of two percentage points in the reoffending rates of those supervised by Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs). We have been clear, however, that overall performance of CRCs needs to improve across a range of areas. We have taken decisive action to stabilise and improve the delivery of probation services, including by investing £22m per year to enhance ‘Through The Gate’ services and introducing minimum standards so that all providers offer monthly face-to-face meetings with offenders during their first 12 months of supervision. In September, we concluded a public consultation on proposals to end current CRC contracts early and introduce new arrangements for delivering probation services that will better integrate public, private and third sector probation providers and improve outcomes. We will bring forward more detailed plans early next year.</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

During my visit to Baghdad and Erbil in January, I welcomed the recent national elections and those in the Kurdistan region and encouraged swift completion of the formation of the Iraqi cabinet and Kurdistan Regional Government. We recently welcomed the Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament and a delegation of Iraqi MPs to the UK where they were able to witness British parliamentary processes and exchange experiences. As part of our programme assistance, the UK is helping the Government of Iraq in newly liberated areas and in Basra to make governance and the delivery of services more effective and responsive, so strengthening relations between local communities and the Iraqi authorities.</p> more like this

It is a legally binding treaty, registered with the UN, and remains in force until 2047. We will continue to monitor closely events in Hong Kong, speaking publicly on issues of concern. We regularly raise our concerns directly with the Chinese and Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) Governments. The Foreign Secretary raised Hong Kong, and the importance of the Joint Declaration, with Chinese State Councillor Wang Yi on 31 July. He also spoke to Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam on 9 August, when he noted our support for Hong Kong's high degree of autonomy, and our commitment to 'One Country, Two Systems'.</p> more like this
