We continue to raise their cases with the Iranian government at every opportunity, and make decisions in line with what we believe will produce the best outcomes in their cases. However, we will not be providing a running commentary. We judge this will not be helpful, or in the best interest of each case.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​On 27 February , the Foreign Secretary announced that the Foreign &amp; Commonwealth Office (FCO) would eliminate avoidable single-use plastics from its UK operations by the end of 2018, and from its global operations by 2020. It is the first British Government Department to announce such a ban. This ambitious target makes the FCO a leader in the fight against plastic pollution not just in the UK, but globally too. Since January the FCO has taken steps to remove avoidable single-use plastic from its UK catering outlets. For example, in its UK canteens, the FCO has switched plastic cutlery and food packaging and cups to biodegradable alternatives and provided additional glasses and china mugs to reduce waste. In early April in the UK we introduced a 50p 'latte levy' on single-use coffee cups which has increased the use of reusable cups from 3% of total hot drinks sales to 46%. In the year to date, our actions have reduced plastic waste from our UK catering operations by about 40% compared to the same period last year. We have requested all Heads of Mission overseas take similar action and are working with our suppliers to further reduce avoidable single-use plastics to enable us to meet the Foreign Secretary's target.</p>

We have also funded a consortium of partners, including the Council for Disabled Children, to work with health and social care services, including producing guidance on improving education, health and care (EHC) plans; and funded a special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) leadership programme and legal training for all local authorities and their health partners to ensure they are clear on their statutory responsibilities.</p><p> </p><p>We have strengthened the National Health Service (NHS) Provider Contract for NHS Trusts to include a requirement to report on meeting the six-week deadline for health input into EHC plans; established a national network for Designated Medical Officers and Designated Clinical Officers, funded a local authority led regional network and developed resources to support joint self-assessment and peer review.</p><p> </p><p>We monitor implementation on the ground, for example, looking at the time it takes for local authorities to issue EHC plans. The Ofsted/Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspections of SEND services we introduced in 2016 have also shone a light on strengths and weaknesses in the delivery of EHC plans and have proved a catalyst for local change. Where significant concerns have been identified, written statements of action (WSOA), setting out the actions the local area will take to improve services, are supporting local areas to improve their services. Ofsted and the CQC will re-visit each area with a WSOA to assess the progress they are making; and where sufficient progress is not being made, we will take appropriate action.</p><p> </p><p>64.9% of new EHC plans (excluding exception cases) were issued within 20 weeks in 2017, up from 58.6% in 2016.</p>
