Written Answers
Entertainers: EU Countries
Asked by: Robert Neill (Conservative - Bromley and Chislehurst)
Thursday 25th March 2021

Question to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport:

To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what discussions he has had with cabinet colleagues on the potential merits of negotiating a bespoke visa waiver agreement with the EU exempting touring musicians, performers, creative teams and crews from needing to obtain a visa when seeking paid work.

Answered by Caroline Dinenage - Minister of State (Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport)

This government recognises the importance of our world leading creative and cultural industries. That is why the UK took an ambitious approach during negotiations that would have ensured that touring musicians, performers and their support staff did not need work-permits to perform in the EU. Regrettably, our proposals were rejected by the EU, but our door remains open if the EU wants to reconsider its position.

A bespoke visa waiver agreement with the EU would require the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) to be renegotiated. The TCA is the basis of our trading relations with the EU, and this is not going to be renegotiated.

The Commission would be likely to argue that any EU-wide visa waiver agreement can only be part of a wider package with a binding non-discrimination clause and a reciprocal visa waiver agreement covering all current and future Member States. This was what the Commission proposed in the negotiations and would be incompatible with our manifesto commitment to retain control of our borders.

It should also be noted that while the EU has visa-waiver deals with some other third countries, this does not bind Member States and many continue to apply visas on paid activity, while some Member States offer the same waiver regime to those with whom they don’t have deals.

However, we will imminently be engaging with Member States to improve their guidance around their entry and work requirements. DCMS is working closely with the FCDO and other government departments on an engagement strategy with EU Member States, and DCMS Ministers will speak to our Heads of Missions in EU countries shortly. Should Member States be willing to change their rules to match the UK’s significantly more generous arrangements for touring professionals, then we will have those discussions and encourage them to do so.

Parliament Square: Flags
Asked by: Andrew Rosindell (Conservative - Romford)
Wednesday 24th March 2021

Question to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport:

To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, if his Department will make an assessment of the potential merits of flying the flags of the Commonwealth countries in Parliament Square for the full week around Commonwealth Day in 2022.

Answered by Caroline Dinenage - Minister of State (Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport)

Each year, on Commonwealth Day the department arranges for the flags of Commonwealth countries to be flown in Parliament Square. There are currently no plans for this to be extended for the full week around Commonwealth Day in 2022. Any decision on changes to the current flag flying programme would need to be agreed with FCDO, No10 and the Royal Household.

Wednesday 24th March 2021

Question to the Cabinet Office:

Gender Equality Advisory Council
Asked by: Emily Thornberry (Labour - Islington South and Finsbury)
Thursday 11th March 2021

Question

To ask the Minister for Women and Equalities, what recent progress the Government has made in contributing to the 2018 G7 Gender Equality Advisory Council’s recommendations (a) 18.1, (b) 28 and (c) 40.

Answered by Elizabeth Truss - Minister for Women and Equalities

Under the UK G7 Presidency, the Prime Minister has reconvened the Gender Equality Advisory Council (GEAC). I am delighted to act as Ministerial Lead working with the independent Council and building on the foundations laid by the Canadian and French G7 presidencies, and to champion the core principles of freedom, opportunity, individual humanity and dignity for women around the world.

The Government remains deeply committed to tackling global poverty and helping to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Despite the economic challenges we face, the UK will remain a major donor spending 0.5 per cent of GNI on Overseas Development Aid (ODA).

The Foreign Secretary’s Strategic Framework for UK ODA announced in the House on 26 November 2020 will see us focus on global challenges where the UK can make the most impact: on climate change and biodiversity; girls’ education; COVID and global health security; on open societies, conflict resolution, humanitarian crises and trade and economic development.

FCDO supports a range of programmes that promote the importance of data to inform policy-making and programme delivery focused on the needs of the most vulnerable. Having joined the Inclusive Data Charter last year, we will produce an Action Plan on improving the quality, quantity, financing, and availability of inclusive and disaggregated data, as well as the capacity and capability to produce and use it.

The Prime Minister has made absolutely clear our continued commitment to stand up for the right of every girl to 12 years of quality education. ODA spending is only one of our tools in achieving our ambitions; this year we will be co-hosting the Global Partnership for Education Replenishment with Kenya and using our G7 Presidency to rally the international community to step up support to girls’ education.

Biodiverse Landscapes Fund and Blue Planet Fund
Asked by: Lisa Cameron (Scottish National Party - East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow)
Wednesday 3rd March 2021

Question to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs:

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, how he plans to allocate money from the (a) Biodiverse Landscapes Fund and (b) Blue Planet Fund; and what criteria he plans to apply to determine that supported projects benefit both human development and nature conservation objectives.

Answered by Rebecca Pow - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs)

The Biodiverse Landscapes Fund will deliver poverty reduction, conservation and climate outcomes across biologically diverse, transboundary landscapes worldwide. It will create sustainable economic development for local communities which supports the protection, restoration and sustainable management of these critical landscapes, rather than deriving short-term gains from their unsustainable use.

The Biodiverse Landscapes Fund is currently in development. Funding will be allocated, however, to a range of delivery partners who have demonstrated that they can deliver interventions that will meet the Fund's objectives in a landscape via an open, competitive process. Full details of this process, its timelines and the Fund's objectives will be published in due course.

The Blue Planet Fund aims to help countries eligible for Official Development Assistance (ODA) to reduce poverty through the protection and sustainable management of their marine resources. It will focus on addressing human-generated threats across four key themes: biodiversity, climate change, marine pollution, and sustainable seafood. The Fund is currently being designed by Defra and FCDO, based on available evidence and drawing on information from across HMG's international network, and will be launched later this year.

Both programmes are ODA funded, and so are subject to the Government’s guidelines and rules for designing and implementing ODA programmes. As such, once operational, progress will regularly be assessed against pre-agreed criteria and through a robust monitoring, evaluation and learning cycle to ensure projects achieve economic development and conservation objectives. Defra publishes information on ODA funded programmes to the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) registry and adheres to the transparency standards set out in the UK Aid Strategy.

Food Systems Summit
Asked by: Caroline Lucas (Green Party - Brighton, Pavilion)
Tuesday 2nd March 2021

Question to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs:

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what the Government’s latest assessment is of the role of dietary change in contributing to (a) the objectives of the UN food systems summit and (b) the UK's policy goals on (i) public health, (ii) biodiversity protection, (iii) climate and (iv) animal welfare.

Answered by Victoria Prentis - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs)

The UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) presents an excellent opportunity to showcase the UK's thought leadership on food systems and serves as a valuable platform to exert our influence internationally. Defra and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) are working closely to ensure that the UK makes a valuable contribution on all aspects of the food system, including diets.

The Government fully supports consumer choice. Our priority is to support British farming and encourage sustainable food production to ensure we have a secure, environmentally sustainable and healthy supply of food with improved standards of animal welfare. The Government's obesity strategy is designed to reshape the food environment by providing people with a healthier choice and encouraging them to take it.

We recognise the contribution to greenhouse gas emissions made by agricultural sectors. Evidence shows that plant-based food products are generally less carbon intensive to produce than livestock products. However, while food choices can have an impact on greenhouse gas emissions, well managed livestock also provide environmental benefits such as supporting biodiversity and protecting the character of the countryside.

The Independent Review of the food system being led by Henry Dimbleby will help the Government to further understand how dietary changes can deliver public policy goals on health and sustainability.

Food Systems Summit
Asked by: Caroline Lucas (Green Party - Brighton, Pavilion)
Tuesday 2nd March 2021

Question to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs:

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what the Government’s priorities are for the UN food systems summit in September; and what activities are taking place (a) across Departments and (b) with civil society to prepare for that summit.

Answered by Victoria Prentis - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs)

Defra and FCDO are working closely to ensure that the UK makes a valuable contribution to the UN Food Systems Summit. The UNFSS presents an excellent opportunity to showcase the UK’s thought leadership on food systems and serves as a valuable platform to exert our influence internationally.

In particular, the UK is taking a leading role on Action Track 5 on 'Building resilience to vulnerabilities, shocks and stresses' and we are inputting heavily into Action Track 3 focused on 'Building nature positive production at sufficient scales' where we see clear linkages with our ambitions for COP26.

We are keen to build on the successes of the high-quality engagement with civil society which was done as part of the National Food Strategy and we are consulting colleagues in the Devolved Administrations to ensure that their voice is captured.

Coronavirus: British Overseas Territories
Asked by: Matthew Offord (Conservative - Hendon)
Thursday 25th February 2021

Question to the Ministry of Defence:

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what support his Department has provided to governments of the Overseas Territories to help tackle the covid-19 pandemic.

Answered by James Heappey - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Ministry of Defence)

In support of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), Defence has provided a range of assistance to British Overseas Territories in their response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the provision of advisory teams, the transportation of medical supplies and, more recently, logistical support with vaccine delivery to the Falkland Islands, Ascension Island and Gibraltar. Defence continues to work closely with the FCDO in order to respond to any request for support to British Overseas Territories.

Sub-Saharan Africa: Bank Services
Asked by: Baroness Anelay of St Johns (Conservative - Life peer)
Wednesday 17th February 2021

Question to the HM Treasury:

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the end of the transition period for the UK's departure from the EU, what steps have they taken to review the terms and conditions of the EU Payment Services Directive; and what assessment they have made of how they can support greater competition and transparency in the market for money transfer companies in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Answered by Lord Agnew of Oulton - Minister of State (HM Treasury)

HM Treasury is leading a Payments Landscape Review. The review aims to ensure the UK maintains its status as a country at the cutting edge of payments technology. The review is looking at what can be done across government, regulators and industry to ensure that the UK’s regulatory framework and infrastructure for payments remains world leading.

HM Treasury issued the Payments Landscape Review Call for Evidence in July 2020 and it closed in October 2020. The Call for Evidence sought views on a range of opportunities and risks in UK payments, including for cross-border payments. The government is considering the responses and will set out next steps in due course.

Increasing competition and transparency is important to driving remittances innovation leading to consumers having better services and reduced costs. FCDO through the Harnessing Innovation for Financial Inclusion programme is focused on enhancing competition, transparency, and efficiency of the remittances market working across 18 African countries and is conducting research on key UK remittance corridors in Africa to understand what actions could lower the cost of remittances from the UK.

This is welcome progress but after five years apart the agony for Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe and her family continues. The FCDO must now step up efforts to bring Nazanin - and all dual nationals wrongly detained in Iran - home without delay. https://t.co/utBrqSVlRS

Thanks to @halfon4harlowMP who would have said this in @FCDO questions but for a connection issue, “#KurdistanRegion has merits such as religious freedom & some flaws. But it wouldn’t exist without Sir John Major’s brave decision to pioneer a safe haven and no-fly zone.

In response to @KateOsamor, Minister @morton_wendy tells us that nutrition feeds into the FCDO's work around ending preventable death. She adds that the FCDO will not have a nutrition strategy, but that it will have an action plan for ending preventable deaths.

They have ignored the @CommonsIDC urging them to “commit to all UK ODA funding meeting the transparency standard of ‘good’” and for the FCDO to “achieve a score of ‘Very Good’ on transparency of aid spending, as assessed by the Aid Transparency Index” in its first year.
