Emergency Food Aid For Mozambique

EDM number 1247 in 1990-91, proposed by Mike Watson on 15/10/1991.

That this House notes with concern the continuing conflict throughout Mozambique, which has prevented two million internally displaced people from planting crops, leaving them reliant on emergency food aid; commends the efforts of Oxfam and Comic Relief in mounting an airlift to move food and blankets worth ú0.75 million over a three month period; condemns the Overseas Development Administration's refusal to provide funding of ú0.25 million required for the third month of the airlift; recognises that such parsimony is perfectly consistent with the Government's reduction in overseas development aid to a record low of only 0.27 per cent. of gross national product in 1990, but nevertheless urges a reconsideration of its willingness to assist in alleviating the desperate plight of the people of Mozambique.

This motion has been signed by a total of 33 MPs.
