HC Deb 14 February 1991 vol 185 c535W
Mr. Wray

To ask the Prime Minister if he will list the(a) economic, (b) scientific, (c) technical, (d) environmental, and (e) social programmes which Her Majesty's Government have supported since 1989 in (i) Argentina, (ii) Brazil, (iii) Chile, (iv) Colombia, (v) Mexico, (vi) Panama, (vii) Peru, (viii) Venezuela and (ix) Uruguay.

Mrs. Chalker

I have been asked to reply.

We have no bilateral aid programmes for Argentina or Venezuela. We have technical co-operation programmes of varying sizes in the other seven countries. All these programmes concentrate on renewable natural resources (with a special emphasis on the sustainable use of the environment), English language teaching, and postgraduate training in Britain. Since July 1989 we have been building up a specifically environmental programme in Brazil.
