HL Deb 22 October 1980 vol 413 cc2037-8WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is the amount of promised aid to Tanzania for current fiscal year; and whether, in view of a United Nations Agricultural Report that currently Tanzania is only producing 25 per cent. of its grain requirements, any further aid given should be strictly confined to aiding agricultural production.


We have not promised a specific sum to Tanzania; expenditure in 1980–81 will be determined mainly by the rate of fulfilment of commitments made in earlier years. However, many of our current projects in Tanzania seek directly or indirectly to stimulate agricultural production.
