HC Deb 27 October 1999 vol 336 c916W
Mr. Corbyn

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what steps Her Majesty's Government take to ensure that financial aid to Tunisia under the Euro-Mediterranean Agreement is not used to fund the Tunisian state security apparatus. [95094]

Mr. Vaz

Financial aid under the Euro-Mediterranean Agreement is administered by the European Commission which is responsible for ensuring that these funds are used to further the goals of the Agreement: the establishment of an area of peace and stability; shared prosperity; and partnership in human, social and cultural affairs. We monitor the use of these funds through our membership of the Med Committee established under the Agreement.
