§ Mr. Biggs-Davison
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs whether he will state the total cost of aid to Zambia and other Commonwealth countries, whether by way of loan or direct grant, arising out of the imposition of sanctions against Rhodesia.
§ Mr. Bowden
With regard to assistance to Zambia I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to the hon. Member for Meridan (Mr. Rowland) on 7th February.
No direct assistance arising out of the imposition of sanctions against Rhodesia has been given to any other Commonwealth country, but at the request of the Zambian Government some of the assistance to Zambia has been spent on the development of supply routes through Tanzania and Malawi.—[Vol. 740, c. 271.]
