The United Kingdom has not contributed antivirals to the World Health Organisation (WHO) stockpile, but has donated £500,000 to the WHO to assist its rapid response activities and to improve epidemiological surveillance in south-east Asia for pandemic influenza. This corrects the information given in the answer given to my hon. Friend Lynne Jones, regarding the WHO's stockpile, on 1 March 2007, Hansard, column 1552W.
