 We must prevent this desperate situation descending into a humanitarian catastrophe. There is already an urgent need for supplies of aid and it is vital that the Sri Lankan government and the Tamil Tigers allow international agencies immediate access to people driven from their homes by the fighting. It is essential that we get food, medicines and shelter in as soon as possible to save lives. That is why the Department for International Development is giving a further £5 million - this money would be immediately available.
