To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs from which budget heading his Department will allocate funding for Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe election observation in future.
We greatly value the election observation work of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). We will continue to uphold the commitment we made in 2004 to provide, from the UK, up to 10 per cent. of observers to the OSCE's election observation missions on, an ad hoc basis.
Decisions on internal resource allocations are still under way and we are considering the details of arrangements for funding the UK contribution.
