HC Deb 16 March 1978 vol 946 cc321-2W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what amount of official British aid in the United Kingdom and in South Africa has been given to people or organisations likely to promote African self-determination and emancipation from apartheid, such as grants to church groups, social, educational, health and welfare groups, trades unions, political pressure groups, co-operatives, vocational training centres, students, and so on, for each of the last five years.

Mrs. Hart

I regret that it is not possible to classify aid spent within Britain plan for redeployment and rationalisation without putting important services at risk. I cannot forecast when the redeployment recommended by the working party will be completed, but it is bound to be a gradual process and is likely to take a number of years.
