HC Deb 15 November 1977 vol 939 c103W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Minister of Overseas Development for what purposes the £5 million aid, recently granted by her Department to Mozambique, will be used; and what assurances she has obtained that none of the money will be used by terrorists against the people of Rhodesia or for internal repression in Mozambique.

Mrs. Hart

The recently signed £5 million United Kingdom-Mozambique programme loan is for the purchase of spare parts and maintenance equipment of British manufacture, to be mutually agreed by the Government of Mozambique and the Government of the United Kingdom. British development assistance is for peaceful purposes only and the Government of Mozambique accept this.
