§ Mr. Terry Fields
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if any financial aid has been given to Chile since January 1983; what was the amount of aid; and for what purposes it was given.
§ Mr. Raison
No financial aid has been given to Chile since January 1983. Britain does, however, make funds 193W available through the World University Service to assist Chilean refugees to receive training at British educational institutions. It is estimated that in 1983 some £439,000 was spent on this programme.
