star this property answer text <p>Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) and Network Rail have agreed service recovery plans in place that are activated depending on the specific incident, its location on the network, destination and time of day.</p><p> </p><p>Recognising the potential impact of delays on passengers these plans will typically balance trying to get the maximum number of passengers to their destination as quickly as possible, recovering the delays whilst also attempting to ensure no further delays and obstructions are introduced across the network. There will be times that these plans need to be adapted to suit the situation and scale of the incident. As such it is important that decisions are taken by operational staff within Network Rail and GTR as they are best placed to understand the potential impact on passengers on a case by case basis.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In my response to previous questions by the Noble Lord, I noted that a lessons learnt process had taken place following the 2017 hurricane season involving a range of Departments of Her Majesty's Government, led by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). To protect the integrity of this and future lessons learnt processes, the FCO does not propose to make the results externally available. However, the progress made by Departments against actions identified in the lessons learnt exercise was made available to the House in the form of a Written Ministerial Statement on 4 July. On 16 July I held a &quot;drop-in&quot; session for Members of both Houses to discuss hurricane preparation and recovery.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government condemns both the persistent widespread human rights abuses of the North Korean regime and the consistent attempts of that regime to develop nuclear weapons in defiance of international law. No UK money goes directly to the regime in North Korea, and there is no DFID bilateral aid programme. A number of multilateral agencies that work in North Korea receive funding via the UK’s core contributions to these organisations. The FCO scaled back project work after the fourth nuclear test – but continues to fund some small-scale projects aimed at improving the lives of the most vulnerable in DPRK society. This will be kept under review.</p> more like this
