HL Deb 17 October 2000 vol 617 c77WA
Lord Judd

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action they are taking, together with other governments and international organisations, to ensure that adequate educational facilities and schooling are available for all children of school age in Kosovo, including those of ethnic minority groups such as the Roma, Ashkalia and Serbs. [HL3800]

Baroness Amos

During the Kosovo crisis DFID contributed £2.5 million to UNICEF partly to support education in the Balkans, including for minorities. Our bilateral programme focuses on capacity building in areas including social welfare and social benefits, public administration, revenue collection, media and electoral activities. This support is intended to benefit all ethnic communities. We are not providing bilateral support in the field of education.
