I have been in contact with the government to press for a strong and generous response to the crisis in Nepal by the UK. I was pleased to see this morning that the UK is going to send more aid. We are assisting with supplies, tents, lifting equipment and medical support.
The UK now has a large overseas aid budget, which allows us to respond well to a crisis. All too many people have lost their homes, need food, water and shelter. All too many have been injured by the earthquake and need medical treatment. The UK can help, and will once again show its willingness and ability to do so in a dreadful humanitarian crisis.
