To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what proportion of the restored EU funding to the Palestinian Authority will be directed to (a) the West Bank and (b) Gaza; and if he will make a statement. (144361)

On 18 June, EU Foreign Ministers discussed the resumption of assistance to the Palestinian Authority. They concluded that the EU should develop the conditions for urgent practical and financial assistance. The EU has not yet decided how this will be delivered. However, we will wish to ensure that assistance addresses the needs of Palestinians in both Gaza and the West Bank.
