Standard
BishSouthwarktaxcreditsOn the 5th April 2016 the Bishop of Southwark, the Rt Revd Christopher Chessun received a written answer to a question about Iraq and the Islamic State.

Iraq: Islamic State
To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to support efforts to demine areas liberated from Daesh in Iraq.
Answered on: 05 April 2016

The Government of Iraq is committed to stabilising areas which have been liberated from Daesh. This includes providing security, including through demining efforts, to enable civilians to return. The UK, along with our partners in the Global Coalition, is supporting the Government of Iraq to do this. This includes providing £2.5 million to the UN Development Programme’s stabilisation fund for Iraq, and £225,000 to the UN Mine Action Service to establish a unit to assess the problem and coordinate donor support.
