§ Sir Alastair Goodlad
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has received from the Department for International Development concerning the provision of aid to Kosovo. 
§ Mr. Tony Lloyd
I understand that officials from the Department for International Development (DFID) will be meeting with representatives of those British charities which are already active in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia today. The meeting will enable DFID officials to assess the current situation in Kosovo and its people's needs. I am further informed that the Department for International Development is currently funding Oxfam's work in providing a centre for disabled children and health education for rural women in Kosovo.
