§ Mr. Galloway
To ask the Secretary of State for foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list the applications from non-governmental organisations for joint funding of projects in Nicaragua in 1985–86 and 1986–87; which applications were successful; and what were the reasons for rejecting the applications that failed.
§ Mr. Chris Patten
There have been relatively few applications from non-governmental organisations requesting ODA support for projects in Nicaragua. The 14 received in 1985–86 and the 10 received in 1986–87 met the criteria for a 50 per cent. ODA contribution under the terms of the joint funding scheme. The details are as follows:
