HC Deb 14 July 1989 vol 156 c649W
Mr. Greg Knight

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what further support he is providing for Ghana's economic recovery.

Mr. Chris Patten

The United Kingdom continues to be a major supporter of Ghana's economic recovery programme. My right hon. Friend the Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, signed a grant agreement for a further £20 million balance of payments finance when she visited Ghana at the end of June. This brings to £92.5 million the total of our balance of payments support to Ghana since its economic recovery programme began in 1983.
