Mr David Lidington - Foreign and Commonwealth Office

During the Estimates Day Debate on 1 March I said that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) had contributed $215,000 to a memorial to the Battle of New Orleans (Official Report, 1 March, col 868). However, this must be corrected, since the FCO has not yet made the donation to the memorial. The FCO has been allocated $215,000 from HM Treasury to support the project, but will disburse the funds only once the project is more advanced and sufficient funds to cover the full cost of the memorial have been secured, beyond those of the existing donors. In addition, I said that the State of Louisiana had made a donation, but it has not done so.

Mr Philip Hammond - Foreign and Commonwealth Office

I am pleased to announce the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is continuing support for the Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD). I am also pleased to inform the House that the Secretary of State for International Development, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Putney (Justine Greening), has agreed that the Department for International Development (DFID) will also continue to support WFD.

The FCO will provide 3.5 million to WFD in 2016/17 and plans to provide a similar level of funding in 2017/18.DFID will provide up to 6.5 million to WFD over the next two financial years. Continuation of funding will be subject to WFDs performance.

WFD is uniquely placed to deploy UK parliamentary and party political expertise to help developing democracies. This funding will ensure WFD is able to continue to implement high quality programmes to strengthen parliaments and political party structures.
