Lord Roberts of Llandudno – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for International Development

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lord Roberts of Llandudno on 2016-02-29.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what aid has been given to Greece to assist that country in supporting migrants and refugees.

Baroness Verma

Since the start of the Mediterranean migration crisis, the Department for International Development has provided £55 million in response, including over £19 million in Greece. Assistance through the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and non-governmental organisations has provided life-saving aid to migrants and refugees to support reception, protection, accommodation, and meet basic needs. We are monitoring the situation closely. We stand ready to meet additional priority needs and are sending a team to Greece to assess the situation.
