The Department for International Development (DFID) is in the process of reviewing its last three years' programme of assistance to refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) along the Thailand-Burma border, including support for the provision of food and shelter for refugees in camps on the border. This review will inform the nature of future support to refugees on the Thailand-Burma border, to which I remain strongly committed. Following the Bilateral Aid Review I agreed to a doubling of the overall British aid budget to Burma.
