§ Mrs. Clwyd
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs on what basis the Overseas Development Administration uses planned aid expenditure for 1990–91 rather than actual expenditure when calculating planned increases between the current financial year and future financial years.
§ Mrs. Chalker
As I explained to the hon. Member for Cynon Valley on 20 March at column120, figures for actual expenditure in 1990–91 will not be available until autumn 1991.
