17. Mr. Harold Davies

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how much aid in money and materials has been given to South Vietnam by the United Kingdom since the Geneva Agreements.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

Under the Colombo Plan, Her Majesty's Government seek to meet such requests for economic aid from member countries as fall within the scope of the Technical Co-operation Scheme. Up to 30th June this year, Her Majesty's Government had spent £2,841 for technical training, and £20,875 for training equipment, to meet requests received from the Government of the Republic of Vietnam.
