HC Deb 25 February 1986 vol 92 c485W
Mr. Robert B. Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what specific projects his Department has provided finance for which will improve the development prospects of Tanzania; and what are the sums of money involved.

Mr. Raison

Our largest project in Tanzania is the Songea-Makambako road. This was completed last year at a total cost of £90 million and is to be followed by the establishment of a post-construction maintenance unit (£2.8 million). Other major projects under way are the southern regions health project (£9.4 million) covering the Mbeya referral hospital, and the provision of medical specialists and rural health centres; a rural development project in Lindi-Mtwara (£2.8 million); and grain stores (£4.7 million). In addition, we are involved in other smaller rural development projects (in pest control, the clove industry, land surveys and dairy production in West Kilimangaro) and in a hospital in Zanzibar. We support with technical co-operation science departments in universities in Tanzania, English language teaching and the Tanzania Harbour Authority.
