star this property answer text <p>The violence in the Anglophone regions has been generated as a result of perceived marginalisation of the Anglophone minority. The UK is deeply concerned at the deteriorating violence, deaths and displacement of people which has increased since the end of 2016, with severe effect on civilians. We are working closely with the wider international community, including the UN, to build as full and accurate a picture as possible. The UK continues to raise our concerns with the Government of Cameroon, to call for urgent action to solve this crisis. The UK calls for restraint and an end to violence on all sides.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p><br>Children in care are amongst the most vulnerable in our society and they should be admitted to the school that is best able to meet their needs. Since 2007, school admission authorities have been required to give looked after children highest priority in their admission arrangements. In 2012, this priority was further extended to previously looked after children.</p><p> </p><p>The government also wants to ensure that children adopted from care overseas receive equal highest priority for admission into school as those looked after or previously looked after by a local authority in England. The department is committed to amending the School Admissions Code to achieve that aim.</p><p> </p><p>The department is keen to ensure that looked after children are given parity for admission into school as soon as possible, and has asked admission authorities to use their current flexibilities in setting their own admission arrangements to grant children adopted from care overseas second highest admissions priority in their oversubscription criteria.</p><p> </p>

The Chancellor sets a remit for the Committee each year related to its objectives. On 29 October the Chancellor set out the latest remit in a letter to the Governor of the Bank of England. Alongside the Prudential Regulation Committee (PRC), the FPC introduced an annual stress test of the largest UK banks and building societies in 2014. The FPC will conduct a comprehensive resilience assessment as part of the 2018 stress test at its meeting on 28 November. The Government supports the use of stress tests as a tool to ensure the ongoing resilience of the financial system.</p> more like this
