Terrorism (Victims)

Volume 455: debated on Monday 8 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what role her Department has in the ongoing establishment of the charitable fund to help British victims of terrorism; and if she will make a statement. (110253)

I refer the right hon. Member to the reply given to him and my hon. Friend the Member for Cannock Chase (Dr. Wright) by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (Mr. Woodward) on 11 December 2006, Official Report, column 816W.

Work on establishing the fund is the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (Tessa Jowell). Officials at both our Departments have worked closely together on the issue, and I look forward to her announcement of its launch during the coming months.
