HC Deb 20 April 1994 vol 241 cc528-9W
Mr. Worthington

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what support the United Kingdom Government are giving towards de-mining activity in Somaliland; and where de-mining activity is currently taking place in Somalia.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

We are not funding de-mining work currently. We provided almost £700,000 to support work in north-west Somalia from November 1991 to May 1993. We understand UNOSOM II is supporting 14 local mine clearance schemes and plans to expand them and to open a de-mining training school in Mogadishu.
