Sri Lanka: International Assistance

Volume 494: debated on Monday 22 June 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer of 19 May 2009, Official Report, column 1328W, on Sri Lanka: international assistance, when he expects the International Monetary Fund to present a programme for Sri Lanka; and if he will make a statement. (280683)

The International Monetary Fund has not yet presented a programme for Sri Lanka and the UK has not been asked to vote on a programme yet.

Once a programme is presented, it will be assessed on its merits and the situation on the ground in Sri Lanka to decide whether it will help the people of Sri Lanka.
