HC Deb 07 February 1980 vol 978 cc281-2W
Mr. Robert Taylor

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether the 1977 commitment of £6,000,000 of aid for development projects to Afghanistan as shown in appendix I, of class II, vote 7, of the Appropriation Accounts 1978–79 has been terminated.

Mr. Neil Marten

I refer my hon. Friend to the statement made to the House on 14 January by my hon. Friend the Minister of State, the Member for Mid-Oxon (Mr. Hurd)—[Vol. 976, c. 1222]—that we have ended our aid programme in Afghanistan except that those Arghan students already in this country will be allowed to complete their courses.
