Emergency Lending

Volume 482: debated on Wednesday 5 November 2008

5. To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what conditionality is being applied to emergency UK lending to developing countries in response to the global financial situation. (233025)

The UK Government are not directly providing emergency lending to developing countries in response to the global financial situation. The Department for International Development (DFID) has already initiated a ‘vulnerability study’ of our PSA—public service agreement—countries to help inform future funding decisions. We continue to support international financial institutions in their efforts to provide emergency financial support.
