Volume 475: debated on Monday 12 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development (1) what assessment he has made of the humanitarian situation in Burma following the recent cyclone; and what UK assistance has been offered to Burma; (204620)

(2) what steps the Government are taking to seek to ensure that humanitarian agencies are permitted access to cyclone-affected parts of Burma; and if he will make a statement.

I refer the hon. Member to the statement that I made in the House on 8 May 2008, Official Report, column 863.
