Letter of correction from Dawn Primarolo:

An error has been identified in the written answer given to the hon. Member for Middlesbrough, South and East Cleveland (Dr. Kumar) on 3 April 2008. The second table did not divide Data between East Midlands and West Midlands SHAs; all other figures and the totals are correct.

The correct table is as follows:

Letter of correction from Gillian Merron:

An error has been identified in the oral response given to the hon. Member for Sutton Coldfield (Mr. Mitchell) on 16 July 2008. This was in response to DFID questions 4 and 5. The full answer given was as follows:

Mr. Andrew Mitchell (Sutton Coldfield) (Con): Will the Government consider the possibility of publishing details of the specific support that Britain will provide for Zimbabwe once the criminal and illegitimate Mugabe regime is over? Would not that set a good example to other prospective donor nations and encourage the surrounding countries to look to the future while offering some hope to the long-suffering people of Zimbabwe for an end to their nightmare?

Gillian Merron: Our job is to get help to the poorest people in Zimbabwe to see them through this extremely difficult time. As part of that, we are using sanctions to bring people to the table, but in terms of recovery, as I said earlier, we need to work with a reforming Government. That will include full humanitarian access, the rule of law, human rights and democracy. The principles for re-engagement will be agreed by donors, and we estimate that, when it comes to it, there will be about £1 billion a year for five years. The UK stands ready to play its role, but will work with its international partners to do so.

The figure provided by the Minister for the estimated costs of recovery should have been US$1 billion and not £1 billion as stated. This appears in the second to last sentence of the Minister’s response.
