It's nice to see the FCO maintaining it's usual high standards of honesty. > Myth: Iraq is short of funds to buy humanitarian goods > > Fact: There is no shortage of funds ... Turning to the Latest Weekly Report from the OIP web-site (http://www.un.org/depts/oip/background/latest/wu030225.html) we find the following: 'Due to a cumulative oil revenue shortfall dating from phase VIII (9 June - 5 December 2000) through phase Xll of the programme, 2,460 UN-approved humanitarian supply contracts worth some $4.6 billion, currently lack funds.'
