In the Estimates for the Vote for International Co-operation a provision of £3.35 million has been made for emergency humanitarian assistance, in comparison with expenditure of £1.689 million in 1992.
So far this year £1.3 million has been spent on humanitarian emergency assistance, of which the bulk (£1 million) was allocated to Southern Sudan. A balance of £2 million remains.
It may be that the balance available will be sufficient to meet requirements for emergency humanitarian assistance for the rest of 1993. Should this not be the case, I shall give consideration to the question of seeking additional funding.
