Of the 184 incidents reported to Kick It Out last season by 28 December, 118 (64%) involved alleged racist abuse, while 17% involved complaints about anti-Semitism. Kick It Out also received 15 complaints of abuse involving sexual orientation, 7 about disability, and 13 relating to sexism. The FA’s Inclusion Advisory Board, chaired by Heather Rabbatts, scrutinise these statistics, and those reported directly to the FA quarterly, and report to me every 6 months, which I will monitor for positive and negative trends.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We remain deeply concerned by the situation in Rakhine State. Our approach is to seek an end to all human rights violations by encouraging a resolution of the underlying tensions. We have also made clear to the government of Burma that allegations of human rights abuses must be dealt with through a clear, independent and transparent investigative and prosecutorial process that meets international standards. This call was repeated in a UK co-sponsored Resolution in the UN General Assembly in November 2014. We have also put on record our view that an independent investigation, supported by appropriate technical assistance, would make a significant contribution to accountability and reconciliation. <br><br>We worked with international partners to develop a strong country resolution on Burma at the UN Human Rights Council in March last year, which calls on the Burmese government to tackle the situation in Rakhine and renewed the mandate of the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in Burma. We welcome her recent report and its constructive recommendations on Rakhine.</p>

star this property answer text <p>A leaflet sent out with every invitation for cervical screening provides women with clear, honest and balanced information about the benefits and limitations of cervical screening in order to ensure women are able to make an informed decision as to whether to have a cervical screening test or not.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><em>Improving Outcomes: A Strategy for Cancer</em> (January 2011) makes clear the important role that cervical screening plays in preventing cervical cancer. The strategy also notes that some groups and communities are not accessing cancer screening services. Public Health England (PHE) is working with NHS England via the Public Health Section 7A agreement to develop a system of performance improvement through the use of performance floors, and strengthened governance for screening. The aims of the performance floors are:</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>- Improving performance and equity of service over time by reducing the range of variation at a local level.</p><p> </p><p>- Enabling easy identification of poor performance and the setting of objectives and plans for local action, to reduce variation and improve performance.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>PHE will look at research provided by the STRATEGIC study (Strategies to increase cervical screening uptake at first invitation) to identify methods to help increase uptake among women. The STRATEGIC study will be publishing findings in May 2016, more details of this can be found at:</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.nets.nihr.ac.uk/projects/hta/0916401" target="_blank">http://www.nets.nihr.ac.uk/projects/hta/0916401</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The cervical cancer screening programme was established on the basis that it would prevent, and lead to the early diagnosis of, cervical cancer reducing the number of premature deaths.<sup><sup>[1]</sup></sup></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>No assessment has been made of the financial consequence to the NHS on the low uptake of cervical screening. However, cost-effectiveness is a key criteria of the UK National Screening Committee recommending whether or not screening for a particular condition should take place. For example, a cost-effectiveness evaluation of the current pilot of human papillomavirus (HPV) testing as primary cervical screening is being undertaken alongside the clinical evaluation of the pilot. Cancer Research UK has estimated that, when fully implemented, HPV testing as primary screening could prevent an additional 600 cancers a year.<sup><sup>[2]</sup></sup></p><p> </p><br /><p>[1] Peto et al, The cervical cancer epidemic that screening has prevented in the UK, Lancet 2004; 364: 249-56</p><p>[2] <a href="http://msc.sagepub.com/content/early/2013/06/10/0969141313492313" target="_blank">http://msc.sagepub.com/content/early/2013/06/10/0969141313492313</a></p><p> </p><p> </p>
