§ Mrs. Ewing
asked the Minister of Overseas Development what were the dates of the first applications for aid by each country in receipt of British overseas aid.
§ Mr. Oram
We provide economic aid bilaterally to some 115 countries. Some of these, including dependencies or former dependencies, have been receiving aid for a considerable number of years and I regret that it would not be possible to furnish the information requested without an undue amount of research.
