Volume 472: debated on Tuesday 26 February 2008

To ask the Minister for the Olympics how much was spent on domestic humanitarian assistance in each of the last three years, broken down by source budget. (187333)

[holding answer 20 February 2008]: In my answer of 26 February 2008, Official Report, column 136W, to the hon. Member I set out the budget for the Humanitarian Assistance Unit in each of the last three years. It is not possible to split this budget up in terms of support for domestic incidents and support for international incidents.

The funding for the Humanitarian Assistance Unit all comes from the budget allocated to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
