HC Deb 15 June 1967 vol 748 c133W
Dr. Ernest A. Davies

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what new financial aid Great Britain offered to Pakistan at the Consortium meeting organised by the World Bank in London on 31st May and 1st June.

Mr. Bottomley

£8 million was pledged for 1967–68. As in the case of previous aid to Pakistan, this will be in the form of interest-free loans repayable over 25 years with a grace period of 7 years before repayments of capital begin. Disbursements during 1967–68 will be charged to the Overseas Aid (Bilateral) Vote in due course.
