HC Deb 24 May 1976 vol 912 c8W
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.
