Agriculture

OECD-FAO agricultural outlook 2014-2023. 20th ed., 2014.

Corporate Author:
Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Food and Agriculture Organization

This twentieth edition of the Agricultural Outlook, and the tenth prepared jointly with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), provides market projections to 2023 for major agricultural commodities, biofuels and fish across 41 countries and 12 regions: OECD member countries (European Union as a region), key non-OECD agricultural producers (such as India, China, Brazil, Russian Federation and Argentina) and groups of smaller non-OECD economies in a more aggregated form. Strong demand is expected to keep commodity prices firm, but below recent peaks, with a recovery of stocks leading to a reduced risk of price volatility. This edition includes a special focus on India. Home to the world's second largest population, and the largest in terms of number of farmers and rural population, India is projected to sustain the production and consumption growth of recent years, offering potential to reduce considerably its number of food insecure people.

Examining officers and review officers under section 7 to the Terrorism Act 2000: code of practice.

Corporate Author:
Home Office.

This code of practice is issued under paragraph 6 of Schedule 14 to the Terrorism Act 2000. It applies to: (i) the exercise by examining officers of their functions under Schedule 7 to the Act; (ii) the exercise by review officers of their functions under Schedule 8 to the Act in relation to detentions under Schedule 7; (iii) the training and procedure for designation (where appropriate) of examining officers; and (iv) the training of review officers. Schedule 7 permits examining officers covered by the Code to stop, question and detain persons for the purpose of determining whether they are a person who is or has been concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism. Schedule 8 permits examining officers to take detained persons to places of detention for examination under Schedule 7 and to take steps that are reasonably necessary to identify a detained person. Schedule 8 to the Act provides safeguards on the exercise of Schedule 7 powers including the provision of access to legal advice at public expense and the periodic review of detention by a review officer senior to the examining officer. An examining officer is a police constable, or an immigration officer or customs officer having been accredited as having successfully completed training in the use of the Schedule 7 powers. A reviewing officer is an officer, at least one rank higher to the examining officer, who has not been directly involved in questioning the detained person.
