HC Deb 16 November 1982 vol 32 c112W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assistance is being given by the United Kingdom Government to the refugees on the borders of Uganda and Rwanda.

Mr. Rifkind

A grant has been made to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees of £35,000 from Overseas Development Administration disaster relief funds and a further contribution of £30,000 in response to his recent appeal has been approved. We have also supported a proposed European Community contribution of 2 million ECU—approximately £1.1 million—of which the United Kingdom share would be about 20 per cent.
