Picture: DFID Pakistan The 2013 general elections are a significant landmark in Pakistan’s history – marking the first transition of power from one democratic government to the next. This is also an important year for Pakistan’s women – 100,000 of whom will be voting for the first time thanks to the UK government’s Support for Transparency, Accountability and Electoral processes (STAEP) programme, which is being delivered by The Free and Fair Elections Network (FAFEN) and The Asia Foundation (TAF). Kausar, 25, is one such voter. In the previous elections, Kausar could not vote because she did not have a Computerised National Identity Card (CNIC) and her family did not allow her to. “I wanted to vote last time. It is our right and it is important that we exercise it for the betterment of the country, our children and to ensure the best candidates are elected,” Kausar said.

They were evacuated by air to the military hospital at Camp Bastion, where it was confirmed that they had been killed in action. Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said: I was deeply saddened to learn of the deaths of these soldiers, each highly praised and respected by their colleagues and commanders. It is clear from the tributes paid to them that they were exceptional men who served their country with distinction. My thoughts go out to the families and friends of these brave men at this very difficult time.” Brigadier Rupert Jones, Commander of Task Force Helmand, said: The loss of these 3 brave Scottish soldiers comes as a great blow to It is with great sadness that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that Corporal William Savage and Fusilier Samuel Flint, both from 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, and Private Robert Hetherington, from 7th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, died of injuries sustained in Afghanistan on Tuesday 30 April 2013. 19 June 2013 Search Departments Topics Worldwide How government works Get involved Policies Publications Consultations Statistics Announcements Inside Government British fatalities Operations in Afghanistan Field of operation UK forces are deployed to Afghanistan in support of the UN-authorised, NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) mission and as part of the US-led Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF).

How can I get involved? Where can I find out more? If you work in the public sector, you may be able to set up a public service mutual. What is it? Public service mutuals are organisations that have left the public sector but continue delivering public services. Employee control plays a significant role in their operation. There are many forms of mutual. You might think of major employee-owned businesses like John Lewis or building societies such as Nationwide which are fully or majority owned by their members. But mutuals can also be co- operatives or social enterprises. Mutuals are free from government control and help their staff deliver and improve their services as they know best. Mutuals let dedicated public servants combine their passion for helping others with their desire to provide world-class services, and share in the rewards of success. How can I get involved? Setting up a public service mutual may be for you if you’re working in the public sector and think that: you can run a service more effectively, achieving better outcomes for users you can deliver a service more efficiently, saving on costs and time Take part Start a public service mutual - - - Search Departments Topics Worldwide How government works Get involved Policies Publications Consultations Statistics Announcements Inside Government Contents Introduction Take the tour Origins and Early Inhabitants The Emergence of Downing Street Pelham to Pitt Fall and Rise of Number 10 Number 10 at War Restoration and Modernisation A Place of Entertainment Installations at Number 10 Timeline Larry, Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office Introduction – by Dr Anthony Seldon 10 Downing Street, the locale of British prime ministers since 1735, vies with the White House as being the most important political building anywhere in the world in the modern era. Behind its black door have been taken the most important decisions affecting Britain for the last 275 years. In the 20th century alone, the First and Second World Wars were directed from within it, as were the key decisions about the end of the empire, the building of the British nuclear bomb, the handling of economic crises from the Great Depression in 1929 to the great recession of today, and the building up of the welfare state. Some of the most famous political figures of modern history have lived and worked in Number 10, including Robert Walpole, Pitt the Younger, Benjamin Disraeli, William Gladstone, David Lloyd George, Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher. Number 10 has 3 overlapping functions. It is the official residence of the British Prime Minister: it is their office, and it is also the place where the Prime Minister entertains guests from Her Majesty The Queen to presidents of the United States and other world leaders. The Prime Minister hosts countless receptions and events for a whole range of British and overseas guests, with charitable receptions high up the list. The building is much larger than it appears from its frontage. The hall with the chequered floor immediately behind the front door lets on to a warren of rooms and staircases. The house in Downing Street was joined to a more spacious and elegant building behind it in the late 18th century.

People carrying out building work must usually arrange for their work to be checked by an independent third party to make sure that their work meets the required standards. In some cases the installer can certify themselves that their work complies. Building practices, technology and construction techniques are constantly evolving.

I’m a great fan of the work that you do here. And today, I’ve had an opportunity to see for myself the benefits of the services you provide… …Almost 10 years ago, I started my career on the Liberal Democrat Frontbench as Home Affairs’ Spokesman. Back then I argued that what was needed to reduce crime was simply a focus from government on firm, practical solutions that addressed the root causes of crime and that were proven to work. It’s a view I’ve retained. And an approach the Liberal Democrats have pursued in coalition government. Because ensuring people are free from crime and free from the fear of crime is essential to the foundation of any liberal society. And it’s why tackling crime effectively is central to our party’s vision of a Britain where everyone can get on in life. Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg spoke on crime and rehabilitation on 20 May 2013. Originally given at Nacro, London.

Hillsborough Castle is a golden-orange ashlar, 18th century mansion house built in the 1770s by Wills Hill, first Marquis of Downshire. The building was remodelled in the mid- 19th century and early 20th century to its present form. The present state entrance is formed by a single storey shallow portico of 4 pairs of coupled ionic columns. The castle was the principle seat of the Marquis of Downshire for over 200 years before passing into public ownership in 1922 when it became home to the governors of Northern Ireland. Now the residence for the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, it is a ‘working’ building, serving as the venue for official royal and state functions.

How can I get involved? Where can I find out more? If you work in the public sector, you may be able to set up a public service mutual. What is it? Public service mutuals are organisations that have left the public sector but continue delivering public services. Employee control plays a significant role in their operation. There are many forms of mutual. You might think of major employee-owned businesses like John Lewis or building societies such as Nationwide which are fully or majority owned by their members. But mutuals can also be co- operatives or social enterprises. Mutuals are free from government control and help their staff deliver and improve their services as they know best. Mutuals let dedicated public servants combine their passion for helping others with their desire to provide world-class services, and share in the rewards of success. How can I get involved?
