Volume 486: debated on Wednesday 21 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what recent assessment he has made of the humanitarian situation in Somalia; what steps he plans to take to protect food monitors; and if he will make a statement. (248205)

I refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on 20 January 2009, Official Report, columns 1311-12W, to my hon. Friend the Member for Chorley (Mr. Hoyle).

The Department for International Development (DFID) does not take independent action to protect food monitors on the ground.
