§ Lord Merrivale
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will make available the detailed information held by the disaster units of the Overseas Development Administration on the damage caused in Madagascar by Cyclone Kamisy; and whether they will provide assistance in reconstruction.
§ The Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Young)
We do not have detailed information. However, we have received a message from the President summarising the damage and requesting assistance in various sectors. We were already planning to help in the reconstruction of bridges and roads, and this aid will go forward.
