§ Mr. Maude
I refer the right hon. Member to the answer my hon. Friend the Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, gave my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds, North-East (Mr. Kirkhope) on 29 November, at column318. With regard to future amounts and types of assistance, the know-how funds for Poland and Hungary are expected to continue for five years: it is not possible at this stage to say whether additional assistance will be made available in the future.
