HC Deb 26 March 1971 vol 814 c226W
Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the aid and resettlement agreement recently signed with the Kenya Government.

Mr. Wood

The agreement to which my hon. Friend refers related to the offer of financial aid announced by my predecessor on 15th April, 1970. The aid amounts to £11.5 million. £7.75 million of this will be used for various development purposes to be agreed between the two Governments, including land consolidation and rural development. The remaining £3.75 million will be available for the purchase of British-owned farms under programmes to be agreed between the two Governments.—[Vol. 799, c.257–8.]
