§ Lord Hylton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether, in view of the international interest in navigation along the whole length of the Danube, they will seek to mobilise funds for the removal of the debris of the three bridges that were destroyed at Novi Sad; and what they estimate the cost of such work to be. [HL1923]
§ Baroness Scotland of Asthal
The UK supports the proposed financing by the European Commission of the Danube Commission's project to clear the Danube at Novi Sad. The European Commission is planning to fund 85 per cent of the estimated total of 24.1 million euro needed to carry out the clearance work.
