Mr. David Watkins

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what requests for financial support have been received by Her Majesty's Government for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees since 6 June 1982; and what has been the response.

Mr. Neil Marten

UNRWA's emergency Lebanon appeal for $39 million, launched on 23 June, has since been reduced to $21 million in the light of actual results. Her Majesty's Government have contributed some £1.116 million special assistance, as follows:

£' 000
i. Food aid to UNRWA 1,000
ii. Blankets 51
iii. Tents 35
iv. Airfreight for OXFAM blankets 30

This is additional to Her Majesty's Government's £4 million cash contribution to UNRWA's regular budget for 1982.
