Question to the Department for International Development:
What steps her Department is taking to support the removal of land mines in developing countries.
Answered by Alistair Burt
Landmines are indiscriminate weapons of war that maim and kill innocent children every day. UK support announced in April last year will make safe land equivalent to the size of over 20,000 football pitches and help 800,000 people live their lives free from the threat of mines.
