HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 c44W
73. Mr. Lester

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what further measures the Government have taken in response to the drought in Africa.

Mr. Raison

We are providing food aid worth £5.7 million to Mozambique, Ghana and Ethiopia, and we are doing all we can to speed up delivery of our food aid in general. We have also given £1.4 million as disaster aid to a number of countries, and we contribute to the European Community's food aid programme.
