HC Deb 15 May 2002 vol 385 c686W
10. Mr. Gordon Marsden

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what discussions her Department has had about programmes to support the development of civil society and to combat social problems in Kaliningrad. [54747]

Clare Short

The focus of DFID's bilateral programme in Russia is at the federal level and in two partner oblasts-Leningrad and Nizhny Novgorod. Kaliningrad is not one of the partner oblasts. However, we are major contributors to the European Commission's TACIS programme, which does work in Kaliningrad.
