Officials at the Department for International Development regularly meet with the HALO Trust and the Mines Advisory Group (MAG) which are the two UK based charity organisations which are funded as part of DFID's global demining programme. These discussions focus on evaluation and monitoring of ongoing programmes in several countries.
The most recent ministerial contact was by my the Secretary of State for International Development, my right hon. Friend Mr. Alexander. He met with MAG in September last year when he visited their new Manchester offices as part of a visit to the region.
