DFID has not been approached by either Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) or by other voluntary organisations about additional insurance premiums payable by them in the aftermath of 11 September 2001. This is a matter for VSO and the insurance companies.

DFID already provides VSO with over £23 million a year under a three-year Partnership Programme Agreement worth £71.5 million.
