To ask Her Majesty’s Government what discussions have been held with their allies concerning the evacuation of young children, babies and mothers from Gaza until adequate shelter, medicine and food is provided.
2 February 2015
The UK is not aware of any such discussions. DFID provided more than £17 million in emergency assistance last summer and pledged a further £20 million for early recovery assistance at the Gaza Reconstruction Conference. We remain deeply concerned by the humanitarian situation, and UK aid is helping to provide shelter, medical care and food vouchers to those in need.
