star this property answer text <p>We regularly raise our concerns about Pakistan’s blasphemy laws and the need for reform, as well as concerns about specific cases where individuals have been accused of blasphemy. In February 2015 I raised UK concerns about blasphemy laws with a group of visiting Pakistani Parliamentarians. The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond), discussed Pakistan’s blasphemy laws with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in November 2014.</p><p>In December 2014 my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister the member for Witney (Mr Cameron) also stressed our concerns about Pakistan’s blasphemy law with Prime Minister Sharif. We will ensure that this issue continues to be raised at the highest levels in Pakistan.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The reductions will come through continuing the work we have done to make the Foreign and Commonwealth Office more efficient, with savings in consultancy and running costs, including a reduction in grants to arms length bodies, such as the British Council, along with the removal of our £12 million unallocated contingency fund. This will not affect our core diplomatic activities or the UK’s position as a leading global power. We will maintain our current global network.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Chancellor announced savings amounting to £200 million from the Department’s budget for 2015-16. Much of this is taken from anticipated underspends against existing budgets, and from contingency, and does not mean that any of the affected programmes will be cancelled. In addition, the Chancellor announced the sale of the interests of London and Continental Railways in land at Kings Cross, valued at £345 million.</p> more like this
