(3) what funding commitment was made by the United Kingdom to Burundi at the Paris Donors Club Meeting of December 2000; what conditions were placed on the fulfilment of this commitment; and what proportion of this funding has been paid to date. 
Clare Short: At the Paris Donors Roundtable Meeting in December 2000 we stated that although the UK would not become a substantial bilateral donor to Burundi we would play our part in support of others, particularly the multilateral agencies. We stated that we would continue our existing bilateral assistance (mainly humanitarian assistance, work with the media, HIV/AIDS prevention, and peace building). We said we would look favourably on making a contribution to the World Bank Multilateral Debt Trust Fund (MDTF). At the Geneva Round Table Meeting in December 2001 we pledged US$1 million to the MDTF. These funds were transferred earlier this year.

During my recent visit to Delhi, I raised with the Government of India the prospect of DFID providing further support for development and conflict reduction in J and K. My officials are now taking this forward.
