HC Deb 14 October 1991 vol 196 c3W
46. Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent progress there has been with aid from Her Majesty's Government to southern Africa.

Mrs. Chalker

We have continued to provide financial and technical support for the economic and social development of the region. This has included balance of payments assistance for countries launching and maintaining agreed programmes of economic reform; emergency assistance for those affected by conflicts in Angola and Mozambique; and, in South Africa, a new programme of training in public administration, in addition to a continuing programme of assistance for black South Africans amounting to some £10 million this year.
