§ Tom Cox
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs pursuant to his answer of 15 July 2004, to question reference 184114, what financial assistance was set aside by(a) the Government and (b) the European Union specifically for facilities for the joint benefit of Greek and Turkish Cypriots in the town of Famagusta. 
§ Mr. MacShane
EU member states are still negotiating the details of the European Commission's proposals for the disbursement of ¬259 million of financial aid for northern Cyprus. Until agreement has been reached on the details, it is not possible to say where the funds will be allocated and for what specific purpose. The UK does not at this stage have any plans for unilateral financial assistance but will pay its share of the EU funding.
