Questions for Oral Answer: Correction

Volume 718: debated on Wednesday 7 April 2010

Statement

I regret that the Answer given to Lord Clarke on 30 March 2010 (Official Report, col. 1288) was not correct in respect of the timing of Department for International Development (DfID) funding of humanitarian assistance to those displaced by recent violence near Jos in Nigeria.

DfID has previously provided £200,000 for the International Committee of the Red Cross ICRC) for use in Nigeria.

DfID is currently considering further additional funding for humanitarian assistance to victims of recent violence in Jos, decisions upon which will be made on the basis of a needs-assessment currently being carried out by the ICRC.
