Overseas Aid: Water

Volume 493: debated on Tuesday 2 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what steps he is taking to promote the Global Framework for Action for water and sanitation to his counterparts in countries with bilateral agencies. (276573)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer given to the right hon. Member for Gordon (Malcolm Bruce) on 12 May 2009, Official Report, column 661W, which highlights our collaboration with the Netherlands. I can confirm that I will be shortly contacting other European Union bilateral agencies to encourage their support for the Global Framework for Action.
