Zimbabwe: Elections

Volume 477: debated on Friday 13 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has made on the effects of the pattern of distribution of food and medicines in Zimbabwe on the forthcoming presidential elections in that country. (208455)

We express our concerns about the worsening humanitarian situation in Zimbabwe, including the distribution of food and medicines, to African leaders and others in the international community, at every available opportunity. The UK will continue to support the Zimbabwean people. We provided £45 million last year supporting the poorest and most vulnerable Zimbabweans, including helping to feed up to 3 million people and providing treatment for more than 30,000 HIV/AIDS patients.
