We have made disbursements to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) every year in the past ten. This includes core contributions through the multilateral budget and bilateral payments. We are not aware of other UK Government departments having made payments to UNRWA. Obtaining the detail for the requested timeframe could only be obtained at a disproportionate cost.
