§ 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.
