HOWARD CALLS ON LOCAL COUNCIL AID FOR TSUNAMI REBUILDING

Folkestone and Hythe MP and Conservative Leader Michael Howard has called on the Government to encourage local authorities to establish special community to community reconstruction aid schemes to help areas of South East Asia hit by the Indian Ocean tsunami.


He made the plea in the House of Commons after Prime Minister Tony Blair warned MPs that the total death toll in the disaster was more than 150,000, with 871 Britons now unaccounted for, and 51 so far confirmed dead.

Mr Howard launched the Shepway tsunami appeal on Friday ( 7 January)
