HC Deb 10 March 1986 vol 93 cc326-7W
Dame Judith Hart

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on future aid to Tanzania.

Mr. Raison

Our capital aid programme to Tanzania includes assistance towards the maintenance of the Songea-Makambako road, the southern regions health project and rural development projects in Lindi-Mtwara and other areas. Technical co-operation for Tanzanian universities, for English language training and for the Tanzania harbour authority is also being maintained.

I have indicated that we are also ready to provide balance of payments support for the Tanzania Government once an economic programme is in place along lines advocated by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
