HC Deb 20 November 1992 vol 214 c403W
Mr. David Atkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assistance has been provided to Albania(a) through the know-how fund and (b) otherwise.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The know-how fund was extended to Albania in July 1992. We are currently working up a programme of assistance: initial projects are concentrating on the privatisation of state farms and the health management sector. We have provided £1.3 million of bilateral humanitarian assistance through grants to British non-governmental organisations. Our contribution to EC humanitarian assistance is some £12 million.
