§ Mr. Hooley
asked the Minister for Overseas Development what rehabilitation assistance Her Majesty's Government will be providing to Guatemala.
§ Mr. Prentice
The Guatemalan Government have gratefully accepted an offer of £250,000 for building materials and related expenditure for rehousing those made homeless by the recent earthquake. Parliamentary approval to this new service will be sought in a Supplementary Estimate for the Overseas Aid Vote. Pending that approval, the necessary expenditure will be met by a repayable advance from the Contingencies Fund.
