To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, pursuant to the Answer of 1 September 2020 to Question 77761 on Department for International Development: Contracts, what the value of the contracts which will be renegotiated is; and what the value of those contracts will be after renegotiation.

As of 2nd September DFID merged with the FCO to form the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO). The FCDO is working at pace to finalise the number of contracts to be renegotiated to account for the reduction in the UK's ODA budget and once this process is complete we will be in a position to confirm the value of the renegotiated contracts. We continue to work collaboratively with our supply partners and take a flexible and reasonable approach to find pragmatic solutions to support continuation of delivery where appropriate.
