HC Deb 30 January 1995 vol 253 cc481-2W
Mr. Corbyn

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what visits have been made to refugee camps containing Somali people and in which countries; and what view Her Majesty's Government have formed of the conditions there.

Mr. Baldry

United Kingdom officials visited Somali refugee camps in Kenya in September 1994 and in Ethiopia in December 1994. The condition of refugees in Kenya is generally stable; that of Somali refugees in Ethiopia is more variable, with some groups remaining vulnerable to food and medical shortages. We have provided over £11 million since 1991 to help refugees in Kenya and Ethiopia, most of whom are Somalis.
