§ Sir F. Bennett
asked the Minister of Overseas Development whether she will give a break-down of aid to be allocated by her Department to developing countries in 1965–66 by categories of scheme, both in terms of sums earmarked and percentages of the whole.
§ Mrs. Castle
New commitments of bilateral aid for development are made throughout the financial year in negotiations with developing countries which are conducted in the context of their development plans and the planning of our own aid. The amounts committed are often for several years ahead, and rarely for a single year only. The disbursements resulting from them, also, usually extend over a number of years.
