§ Mr. Norris
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he plans to provide further humanitarian assistance to civilians in Iraq.
§ Mrs. Chalker
Yes. Since April we have spent over £44 million in aid for the people of Iraq. This figure continues to rise. We are supporting the work of British and British-based Iraqi relief organisations, and United Nations agencies, and are in constant touch with them about how we can help further.
