§ Lord Ahmed
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they have funded, or intend to provide funding for, the Committee for the Eradication of the Abduction of Women and Children in Sudan. [HL3743]
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Scotland of Asthal)
Abduction is a key issue to which we pay particular attention in the Sudan.
Through the EU, we have part financed the work of the Committee for the Eradication of the Abduction of Women and Children (CEAWC). Our ambassador in Khartoum has visited areas affected and has attended CEAWC workshops there and in Khartoum to demonstrate our concern and to urge all concerned to greater efforts.
