HL Deb 23 June 1999 vol 602 cc87-8WA
Lord Judd

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What arrangements they are making together with their allies to ensure effective and adequate educational facilities and vocational and professional training to provide the essential human resources for the future reconstruction, government and leadership of Kosovo and, as circumstances permit, of Serbian Yugoslavia. [HL2891]

Baroness Amos

Restoring educational facilities is an important element in returning normality to Kosovo. We are currently assessing needs in this and other sectors to identify what the international community should do in the short term to help the Kosovars re-establish their schools and colleges. Thereafter the longer term structure for education and the assistance that the international community should provide will need to be developed by the Kosovars with international advice and support. Donor conferences will undertake to ensure effective and co-ordinated support for Kosovo's reconstruction.
