HC Deb 12 December 1985 vol 88 c728W
23. Mr. Corbyn

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what level of United States aid has been promised to Northern Ireland in the wake of the Anglo-Irish Agreement.

Mr. Tom King

The Government of the United Kingdom have not received any formal offers of financial support from the Government of the United States of America for Northern Ireland in response to the signing of the Anglo-Irish Agreement. But the President has said that he will be working closely with Congress in a bipartisan effort to find tangible ways for the United States to lend practical support to this important agreement. I welcome this response, but I cannot anticipate what the outcome will be.
