HC Deb 01 May 1996 vol 276 cc548-9W
Mr. Parry

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent aid was given to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea by the European Union; and if he will make a statement. [27137]

Mr. Hanley

The European Community Humanitarian Office has contributed 290,000 ecu—approximately £228,346—in late 1995 to North Korea following the flood.

United Kingdom assistance is described in my answer to the hon. Member for Fife, North-East, Mr. Campbell, on 7 February 1996, Official Report, column 192. We will consider a further contribution to the IFRC appeal depending on the findings of the nutritionist's report which is expected shortly.
