§ Mr. Willey
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assistance the British Government have given to the Tanzanian authorities 736W following the attack on Tanzania by Uganda.
§ Dr. Owen
The British Government have made available to the Government of Tanzania programme aid amounting to £1 million, to be used subject to the normal conditions attached to such aid, for civilian rehabilitation purposes in the Kagera region. This is additional to the £2.5 million of programme aid made available recently for other purposes. The British Government have also paid the air freight costs of a girder bridge, and have supplied a small amount of mine detecting equipment, to help the rehabilitation of the region. A supplementary estimate for the amount involved, which is of the order of £81,000, will be laid before Parliament in the normal way.
