HC Deb 10 May 1985 vol 78 c532W
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.
