To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of whether the work of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) is in line with their objective to make the UK international aid process transparent and accountable; and what discussions they have had with UNRWA about transparency and accountability.

DFID’s Memorandum of Understanding with UNRWA requires it to apply transparency standards in line with the UK Aid Transparency Guarantee and the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) for all funding received from DFID. DFID officials last discussed this with UNRWA as part of our annual review cycle in June 2019 and assessed that UNRWA’s work was in line with the UK’s objective to make the international aid process transparent and accountable.
