§ Mr. Fisher
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what agricultural aid was given by Her Majesty's Government to Ethiopia in each of the last five years.
§ Mr. Raison
No agricultural aid was given to Ethiopia on a bilateral basis during the four years from 1980 to 1983 inclusive, but the Government provided £165,000 to buy seeds and tools in 1984. Ethiopia is a major recipient of multilateral aid especially from the European Community, to which we make a substantial contribution. Much of such aid goes to the agricultural sector.
