HC Deb 10 February 1993 vol 218 c662W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assistance has been provided by Her Majesty's Government to provide for displaced persons in Herzegovina; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

[holding answer 8 February 1993]: We have committed over £70.5 million in humanitarian relief to displaced people and other victims of the conflict in the former Yugoslavia. £41 million has been committed through the EC. The remaining £29.5 million is in direct bilateral assistance, nearly all of which is focused on Bosnia-Hercegovina where the needs are greatest. This bilateral assistance has been spent on such things as the rehabilitation of buildings to provide accommodation for 20,000 displaced people in the Zenica area, the provision of 43 trucks and support staff to deliver relief goods, and the restoration of electricity supplies.
