The UK Government has multi-year commitments to support UNRWA’s Regional Syria Emergency Appeal and UNRWA’s core programme budget. We plan to provide £13m to the Regional Syria Emergency Appeal in 2019 and we also intend to provide £33.5m to UNRWA’s core programme budget next financial year. The UK is a leading donor to UNRWA and I am proud to confirm that we plan to provide up to £80m to UNRWA overall over the next two years.</p><p> </p><p>As one example of the impact UK Aid will have, our support to UNRWA’s Regional Syria Appeal will help provide life-saving assistance for the 438,000 Palestinian refugees in Syria, 95% of whom need sustained humanitarian assistance, and 17,700 Palestinian refugees displaced from Syria seeking shelter in Jordan.</p> more like this

This includes the £1.5 billion of additional funding HM Treasury announced at Autumn Budget 2017 for 2018/19. A full breakdown of how this was allocated to departments can be found in the Chief Secretary’s Written Ministerial Statement, HCWS540, laid on the 13th March (<a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2018-03-13/HCWS540/" target="_blank">https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2018-03-13/HCWS540/</a>).

star this property answer text <p>According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA), nine structures have been demolished in Khirbet al-Halawah so far in 2018, of which four were donor funded. We have not made an estimate of the value of international aid allocated to these structures. No structures directly funded by the UK in the West Bank in recent years have been demolished. Whilst we have not raised these specific demolitions with counterparts in the European Union or the Government of Israel, we continue to raise concerns with the Israeli authorities about demolitions and evictions of Palestinians from their homes in general, which cause unnecessary suffering to ordinary Palestinians, calls into question Israel’s commitment to a viable two-state solution, and, in all but the most exceptional cases, are contrary to International Humanitarian Law.</p><p> </p><p>The UK supports Palestinian communities at risk of forcible transfer in Area C of the West Bank through a legal aid programme, which helps residents challenge decisions in the Israeli legal system. Additionally, we are supporting Palestinian development in Area C and helping nearly 500 Palestinian families to remain on their land through improving infrastructure and enabling access to education and health services.</p>

star this property answer text <p>No UK aid is used for prisoner payments or the fund to which you refer. UK aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA) is used exclusively to pay the salaries of vetted health and education public servants, including teachers, doctors and nurses, in the West Bank. Our money goes into a special, dedicated bank account before being paid to individuals who have been vetted in advance through the European Union Palestinian-European Socio-Economic Management Assistance Mechanism (PEGASE), ensuring UK funding is not diverted. The UK has never allocated aid to the Martyrs Fund to which you refer and we have always had financial safeguards in place to ensure UK aid reaches the intended beneficiaries. UK aid to the PA in 2018 helped immunise up to 3,700 children, provide around 185,000 medical consultations, and educate around 24,000 young Palestinians.</p> more like this
