To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking (1) to ensure that there is no reduction in the level of UK funding to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Syria, and (2) to aid the relief effort in neighbouring countries in 2018–19.

DFID country allocations for 2018 and 2019 are yet to be determined. However, we remain at the forefront in delivering on pledges. In 2017, the UK met its pledge for the regional Syria Crisis Response, disbursing £508 million, or 102% of our pledge against the commitment of £500 million made at the April 2017 Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region conference.

The Government will also continue to provide assistance to support Syrian refugees in the neighbouring countries of Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.
