Kosovo: Small Arms Survey

Volume 690: debated on Wednesday 21 March 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will provide funding or technical assistance for the implementation of the conclusions of the 2006 small arms survey of Kosovo.[HL2627]

We are currently considering proposals, which, if implemented, would help address the harmful effects of small arms and light weapons (SALW) in Kosovo.

The UK is one of the most active participants in international efforts to combat the global proliferation of SALW. We have allocated £13.25 million to a UK SALW strategy over the period 2004-07. We are also one of the largest donors supporting the UN effort to combat the proliferation of SALW, assisting UN agencies, regional organisations, Governments and non-governmental organisations.
