HC Deb 15 June 1967 vol 748 c133W
Mr. David Watkins

asked the Minister of Overseas Development to what extent capital aid to Indonesia is being continued in 1967.

Mr. Bottomley

A small proportion of the commodities being supplied under the 1966 grant of emergency aid to Indonesia has still to be shipped. Her Majesty's Government have recently offered further aid to the Government of Indonesia in the form of a £500,000 interest free loan with seven years' grace period and an overall maturity of 25 years. This offer has been accepted in principle. The loan will be tied to British goods. Disbursements will be charged to the Overseas Aid (Bilateral) Vote.
