§ Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Minister of Overseas Development if he will state the names and numbers of States within the Commonwealth which have applied to him for aid, giving the dates and amounts of their applications and of how each such application has been dealt with.
§ Mr. Prentice
We have provided varying amounts of development aid bilaterally to all the developing countries of the Commonwealth. Thirty independent countries—including the associated States—and 19 dependencies are involved. Information about each application for aid would require excessive research, but British aid statistics are available in the Library.
