star this property answer text <p>A competition to design and build the Type 31e General Purpose Frigate in the UK was announced on 7 September 2017. It is therefore too soon to say who the successful supplier(s) will be. The responsibility for steel procurement on major shipbuilding programmes will lie with our prime contractor(s), who take into account cost, time and quality.</p><p>However, as part of our support for British steel manufacturers, new public procurement policy guidelines have been introduced, and UK steel suppliers will be strongly encouraged to bid in line with these. Going forward, the Ministry of Defence will continue to carry out early market engagement and forecast our steel requirements for shipbuilding through the publication of the UK Government Steel Pipeline.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is committed to supporting Somaliland's democratisation process, in particular timely elections in Somaliland. This forms an integral part of the ongoing dialogue between the British Office in Hargeisa and the Somaliland government. Earlier this month, our Ambassador to Somalia met President Bihi of Somaliland to underline the need for parliamentary and local council elections to take place on time, ‪on 12 December 2019. The UK also provides technical expertise to the Somaliland election commission, and is working to support improvements to the voter registration system and promote women’s participation.</p> more like this

This includes working with the Somaliland judiciary to establish a Code of Conduct and a Monitoring and Inspection Committee, to provide judicial training on rights compliance, to ensure the police are operating in line with international human rights standards, and to improve detention conditions. The UK also supported the Somaliland government to establish a media code of conduct, and maintains regular engagement with civil society on freedom of expression, women's rights, and minority rights.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​UK assistance is making a significant contribution to supporting Somaliland’s ongoing democratisation process, including through: improving the accountability of the judiciary and public security structures; strengthening the technical capability of the National Electoral Commission; and building understanding between government and journalists through support to a new media law. Nevertheless, there remain significant challenges on which we are engaging with the Government of Somaliland, for example, on the continued political marginalisation of women and minority clans, and the ongoing arbitrary detention of journalists. We also remain concerned by the lack of progress in the preparations for 2019 parliamentary and local elections, including the passage of electoral legislation in Parliament, and have called on all three political parties to demonstrate their commitment to democratisation and make the necessary compromises to move the process forwards substantively and ensure elections take place on time ‪on 12 December 2019.</p>
