To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, how much of the budget for the Joint Official Unit on Paris and Sousse was spent directly on outreach and support for victims and survivors of terrorism in each financial year since 2014-2015.

​A Ministerial Committee supported by a Joint Officials Unit (JOU) was set up as a response to terrorist attacks in Tunisia on 26 June 2015. The JOU delivered a significant family engagement programme that included a series of Town Hall meetings across the UK with the bereaved, injured and witnesses; a bespoke mental health Screen and Treat programme; support on accessing compensation; and a Service of Solemn Commemoration at Westminster Abbey. The Programme has since been extended to anyone directly affected by the attacks in Brussels on 22 March 2016 and Nice on 14 July 2016. These activities were funded from within existing Departmental budgets, and as such we are not able to provide separate budget costs.
