Tony Blair Faith Foundation

Volume 497: debated on Thursday 22 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what funding his Department has provided to the Tony Blair Faith Foundation; for which events run by the Foundation his Department has provided sponsorship; and if he will make a statement. (293764)

The Department for International Development (DFID) has not provided any funding directly to the Tony Blair Faith Foundation (TBFF).

We have provided £30,000 to World Vision, who are co-sponsoring a seminar series with the TBFF focusing on the theme of faiths in development. Oxfam and Islamic Relief have also contributed funds to the series. These seminars are taking place at the Royal Society of Arts in London from 7 September to 12 November.
