question text To ask the Secretary of State of International Development, what proportion of the package of recovery and reconstruction for British Overseas Territories affected by recent hurricanes announced by the Prime Minister on 28 November 2017 is classified as ODA; and whether any amount of ODA has been diverted from other intended recipients as a result of that classification. more like this

answer text <p>Under the current Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Development Assistance Committee (DAC) rules the three hurricane affected Overseas Territories, Anguilla, the Turks and Caicos Islands and the British Virgin Islands, are not eligible to receive Official Development Assistance (ODA) due to their Gross National Income (GNI) per capita being above the ODA eligibility cut off point. The United Kingdom (UK) Government has committed £142 million of non-ODA funding to the hurricane relief effort in the Overseas Territories. In addition up to £300 million of loan guarantees will be available to help the affected Overseas Territories access the funds needed to Build Back Better. ODA rules have not and will not stop Britain dedicating the money needed for the hurricane recovery and reconstruction the Overseas Territories.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government committed £57 million to meet the immediate humanitarian needs of the Overseas Territories affected. This funding supported the response across the territories of Anguilla, British Virgin Islands and Turks and Caicos Islands, and accordingly, it is not possible to break the figure down between the three. A further £15 million for early recovery activity was subsequently committed, of which £6.5 million was allocated to Anguilla.</p><p>On 28 November the Prime Minister announced an additional and final £70 million package of recovery and reconstruction support for the affected three Territories. We anticipate a significant proportion of this will be made available to Anguilla. This will be supplemented by up to £300 million of UK loan guarantees for Territories that need support to access finance.</p> more like this
