HL Deb 08 November 1999 vol 606 c111WA
Lord Judd

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is the current level of expenditure by each member state of NATO and by each member state of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development which is not a member of NATO on humanitarian work to deal with the consequences of past anti-personnel mine laying. [HL4411]

Baroness Amos

The Department for International Development is not in a position to provide information on expenditure by other member states of NATO or the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.

In 1997, the Department for International Development announced plans to double annual bilateral expenditure on humanitarian mine action to £10 million in the financial year 2000–01. Since then we have committed over £18 million. The programme is on track to meet its target.
