To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what recent assessment she has made of the humanitarian situation in Kosovo in respect of children. 
§ Clare Short
We receive regular reports on the humanitarian situation in Kosovo through our own representative and through international humanitarian agencies, including UNICEF. We have provided £2.5 million to UNICEF for programmes in Kosovo, and a total of £12.5 million for the Balkans as a whole.
Our support to programmes in Kosovo, both directly and through our share of the funding of the programmes of the EC and multilateral agencies, includes support to health care, social welfare, housing and community development.
