17. Mr. Savidge

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what mechanisms exist to co-ordinate the work of her Department on conflict prevention with that of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Ministry of Defence. [143212]

Clare Short

Two sub-Committees of the Ministerial Committee on Defence and Overseas Policy have been established to improve joint working on Conflict Prevention. One of these which I chair focuses on conflict prevention in sub-Saharan Africa. The other deals with conflict prevention in the rest of the world and is chaired by the Foreign Secretary. Other meetings take place on a regular basis between officials from the concerned Departments.
