HL Deb 26 May 1988 vol 497 c1096WA
Lord Avebury

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether, following the recent victories by the Eritrean People's Liberation Front (EPLF) and the Tigré People's Liberation Front (TPLF) over the armed forces of the Derg, and the large increase in area controlled by the EPLF and TPLF, they will now allocate substantial aid to agencies working in the liberated areas.

Lord Glenarthur

We are considering the implications of the military situation in Eritrea and Tigré in making arrangements for the distribution of food and other relief goods.
