HC Deb 06 March 2002 vol 381 c338W
Mr. Dalyell

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what requests she has had from the Bolivian Government for help in relation to the floods in La Paz; and what action has been taken. [38409]

Clare Short

We have made an immediate commitment of £10,000 through the British Embassy in La Paz to be directed at assisting and protecting local communities to the south of La Paz which had been the most seriously affected.
