To ask His Majesty's Government whether they plan provide aid to Darfuri victims and survivors of violence in Sudan; and what plans they have to support the mandate of the UN Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in the Sudan to achieve more public awareness of abuses in Darfur.

The UK's priority is to secure workable humanitarian access, including operational security assurances for humanitarian agencies and ensuring communities can have safe access to working basic services. There can be no aid without access. We will work closely with the UN, our partners and the international humanitarian system so they can move quickly to scale-up delivery within Sudan when the access situation improves. We have raised our concerns on human rights violations in Sudan in statements and resolutions at the UN Human Rights Council and Security Council, and directly with the Sudanese authorities. We continue to call for an end to violence, and for those responsible for human rights violations to be held to account.
