§ Mr. Fisher
asked the Minister of Overseas Development how much aid will be given during the current financial year to Malawi.
§ Mr. Prentice
Our aid is negotiated on the basis of calendar years to correspond with Malawi's financial years.
In the year ending 31st December, 1968, total disbursements of British Government aid to Malawi are expected to amount to just over£8 million. This includes a budgetary grant of£3.3 million, loans for development projects, loans to assist the Malawi Government to meet compensation and commuted pension payments to expatriate staff, and substantial technical assistance in various forms.
