8. To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what plans his Department has for aid to Thailand. (255793)

We have no plans for bilateral aid to Thailand, which is a successful middle-income country. We are, however, providing this financial year £1 million to the Thailand Burma Border Consortium to assist Burmese refugees in Thailand and internally displaced people in Burma, and £220,000 to three Burmese non-governmental organisations working in north-east Thailand. We are considering proposals for future assistance to organisations on the Thailand-Burma border.
