star this property answer text <p>The UK condemns Daesh's destruction of historical and religious buildings in Iraq, whether they be archaeological sites, churches, mosques or temples.</p><p>The UK's Cultural Protection Fund of £30 million is designed to build capacity and capability in conflict zones in order to protect cultural heritage. Over £4 million from the fund has been awarded to Iraq across four projects. £3 million of this has been allocated to the British Museum's Rescue Archaeology Project. This project supplements the skills of a team of Iraqi national heritage sector workers to assess and record the condition of heritage sites and carry out rescue archaeology as a preliminary to reconstruction at sites damaged by Daesh. The first cohort of Iraqi archaeologists completed their training in 2016 and the second cohort completed their training earlier this year in London.</p><p>The UK is also funding: the University of Manchester, working with the State Board for Antiquities and Heritage in Iraq, to survey and document the pre-Islamic Alexandrian city of Charax, as well as 14 other sites in Iraq; and the University of Liverpool to record, preserve and promote understanding of Yezidi heritage and identity.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The current cholera outbreak in Yemen has been declared by the UN as the worst in the world. Since the start of the outbreak in April, over 250,000 cholera cases have been recorded with more than 1,600 deaths. Children make up 46% of the cases, which are still increasing at a rate of 6,500 a day.</p><p>In response, the UK has increased our funding for Yemen to £139 million for 2017/18. This includes support to tackle the underlying causes of cholera by helping provide emergency food, nutrition, health, water and sanitation, as well as supporting cholera prevention and providing medical supplies and treatment for those affected. In addition, the UK is helping to fund one million lifesaving cholera vaccines through GAVI, the Global Vaccine Alliance.</p><p>The UK is the second largest donor to the UN’s Yemen appeal, and continues active lobbying for a political solution as well for others in the international community to step up co-ordinated action and funding.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Where Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding is present on social housing over 18 metres in height, the Government is providing testing for local authorities and housing associations free of charge. If the screening tests indicate that such cladding would not meet the limited combustibility requirements of the current Building Regulations guidance, local authorities, housing associations and the fire and rescue service will determine the best course of action, communicating closely with residents. Where work is necessary to ensure the fire safety of social housing, we will ensure that lack of financial resources will not prevent it going ahead.</p> more like this

Systems that failed the Government’s large scale cladding tests are in use on 165. Cladding systems that passed the tests are in use on eight social housing towers. As each test was completed the Government contacted the owners of all affected buildings to share detailed advice drawn up by the Independent Expert Advisory Panel. This covers steps to ensure the safety of residents including, where necessary, removal of cladding.</p> more like this

We have already announced a new block of social housing in Kensington Row that will provide 68 permanent new homes, and we are urgently working with a number of developers to secure similar properties in the area.

We have since been in regular contact with every local authority and housing association in the country to identify all social housing tower blocks above 18 meters that are clad specifically in aluminium composite material (ACM). Based on work to date, we know there are 173 high rise social housing buildings with ACM cladding in England and that 165 of these buildings have cladding systems that present fire hazards. We are not currently aware of any other ACM clad social housing blocks that are awaiting testing.</p> more like this
