LONDON puma rihanna velvet creeper , March 31 (Xinhua) -- The distressing story of a mother forced to have the body of her son frozen for months while she saved to pay for his funeral, was told Thursday in a government report on the rising cost of funerals in Britain.

A committee of House of Commons politicians also heard evidence of how bereaved families were denied the cremated ashes of loved family members because of a shortfall in the final payments to funeral parlors.

MP Frank Field, who chaired the committee , said Thursday: "We heard clear evidence of the distressing circumstances and debt this is leading people into at a time when they are grieving and vulnerable. We do not want a return to the spectre of miserable 'pauper's funerals'."

The committee has called for the British government to follow the Scottish government's lead and carry out a review of burials, cremations, and funerals puma rihanna france , with a view to making changes that have a long-term impact on funeral inflation so as to reduce funeral poverty.

The politicians said evidence on publicly-funded bereavement support suggests the funeral industry may not be operating in a way that serves the bereaved.

The maximum award for funeral costs from a government-run social fund has been fixed at 700 pounds (1,006 U.S. dollars) since 2003. The committee said this was not enough to cover the cost of a simple funeral, estimated at 1 puma rihanna solde ,200 pounds. The average cost of a basic funeral in Britain is now around 3,700 pounds.

Field added: "We are concerned by the lack of protection in the market for bereaved customers, particularly those on low incomes. What is clear to us is the contrast between social fund payments for funerals puma rihanna pas cher , which have not increased since 2003, and the costs of a funeral, which rose on one estimate by 3.9 percent from 2014-15 alone in an environment of almost zero inflation. This means that funeral payments for those who can prove they are entitled to assistance now fall far short of covering even a basic funeral."

"We urge the government to conduct a cross-departmental review of burials fenty puma bow slides vert , cremations and funerals, with outcomes that will address the factors driving up funeral director fees and work to reduce funeral poverty," he said.

  BEIJING, April 7 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang met with Swiss President Johann Schneider-Ammann on Thursday, vowing to upgrade bilateral cooperation.




  China attaches great importance to developing ties with Switzerland, said Li, noting that bilateral free trade agreement (FTA) has effectively boosted economic and trade cooperation between the two countries in the past two years.

  The China-Switzerland FTA entered into force on July 1, 2014, which marks a milestone on the bilateral relationship.

  China is willing to deepen cooperation with Switzerland in areas of trade, finance and innovation, and make bilateral cooperation a model in China-Europe relations, said Li.



  Innovation is the only road to transformation and upgrading of the Chinese economy, while Switzerland has competitive advantage in innovation, said Li, saying bilateral innovation cooperation has broad prospect.

  He suggested the two countries create mechanisms for innovation cooperation between businesses, colleges and research institutes.

  Li also called on the two sides to strengthen the alignment of "Made in China 2025" and Switzerland's Industry 4.0 strategy, so as to ensure the two countries lead the pack in the trend of digitization and Industry 4.0.



  Schneider-Ammann spoke highly of the operation of the Switzerland-China FTA, saying the two countries are real cooperative partners of mutual benefit and win-win.

  Switzerland is ready to work with China to expand cooperation in finance, tourism and sports, and is willing to discuss with China on creating platforms for cooperation in innovation, high technology and high-end manufacturing, said Schneider-Ammann.

  Schneider-Ammann is paying a state visit to China from Thursday to Saturday at the invitation of Chinese President Xi Jinping.

BERLIN fenty puma bow slides rouge , May 22 -- If the rumors are true, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will have one more week in a Borussia Dortmund shirt. The 2012 German champion and the 27-year old Gabon international are expected to announce the departure of the Bundesliga's top goal-scorer next week after this coming Saturday's cup final in Berlin against Eintracht Frankfurt.

The player and his management have not yet announced where he will be going to but it seems certain he will leave Dortmund where insiders expect he will join the 2017 league runners-up Paris St. Germain. Both parties have been negotiating for several weeks. Aubameyang regularly spends time in the French capital as several of his friends live there.

Heading for Paris means Aubameyang will not link up with the Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian who are said to have offered 25 million euro a season. Chelsea's Diego Costa is, according to reports fenty puma bow slides bleu , on the wanted list too. In addition to Paris and Quanjian, the Italian club AC Milan is also said to be interested.
