star this property answer text The criteria used in 2010 to draw up the list of priority countries within the “HMG Strategy for the Abolition of the Death Penalty 2010-2015” are set out in that document. The previous Government decided that limited resources should focus on countries ready to engage in a dialogue about capital punishment likely to lead to reform. Many of the countries prioritised in 2010 have implemented reforms in the intervening five years. Saundi Arabia is included in the 2015 Annual Human Rights Report as a country of concern, primarily because of its use of the death penalty. We do not intend to publish a new strategy specific to the death penalty; but we will be publishing a strategy for the FCO’s Human Rights and Democracy Programme Fund on 18 January, which will show how work to abolish the death penalty is important under all three of the strategy’s new themes. The FCO’s death penalty-related work will also be covered in future instalments of the FCO’s Annual Human Rights Report. more like this

star this property answer text The UK regularly discusses issues of reform with the government of Bahrain. In January, My Rt Hon and noble Friend, the Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Baroness Anelay met the Bahraini justice minister and discussed the importance of holding police officers accused of mistreatment to account. Our Ambassador to Bahrain has raised our concerns over allegations of torture and mistreatment with Bahraini ministers. In addition to voicing these concerns, the UK is providing practical assistance to the Government of Bahrain to prevent the use of torture and to address allegations of its use. In particular, the UK is providing support to the Ministry of Interior’s Ombudsman and the Special Investigations Unit, both of whom have responsibility for investigating allegations against security personnel. When allegations are made, we continue to encourage the Government of Bahrain to investigate promptly, thoroughly and impartially and hold any person found guilty of such charges accountable.

Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Mr Johnson), has made clear that the Government continues to be fully supportive of the work of the work of the UN Special Envoy. The UK’s funding for the UN Special Envoy for Yemen’s office, alongside support from other donors, is assisting the UN-led peace process. It enables the UN to recruit technical experts on issues such as mediation, ceasefire design and monitoring, and disarmament and demobilisation. Our support is also helping the UN deliver the logistics of holding formal talks, shuttle diplomacy, and engaging with other political actors in Yemen. more like this

star this property answer text <p>“Parental alienation” describes a situation where a parent knowingly (or unknowingly) manipulates a child’s wishes and feelings towards the other parent in an effort to undermine and interfere with their relationship. The Government is confident that the family justice system can robustly address such behaviour when it is alleged in child arrangements cases.</p><p>As the child’s welfare must be the court’s paramount concern, there is a statutory presumption that the involvement of a parent in the child’s life will further the child’s welfare, unless the contrary can be shown. The court must consider the child’s ascertainable wishes and feelings and how capable each of the parents are of meeting the child’s needs. These principles of the Children Act 1989 safeguard against orders being made because of implacable hostility by one parent.</p><p>Where Cafcass practitioners prepare a report into the child’s welfare, they are aware of the potential for children to be influenced or alienated by parental views. Any concerns of ‘parental alienation’ will be reported to the court.</p>
