§ Mr. McDonnell
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what consultations his Department has undertaken with non-governmental organisations on the development of the Government's cross-departmental initiative on conflict resolution. 
§ Mr. Hain
We have not held any formal consultations on the Global Conflict Prevention Pool as yet. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office maintains regular contact with NGOs and academic institutions in the field of conflict prevention, and has worked with a number of NGOs on conflict prevention projects. Along with the DfID and the MOD we will be expanding and developing these contacts as the cross-cutting strategy develops.
