§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
The latest available figures for gross bilateral aid in each of the past five years are: 1988–89 £1.1 million, 1989–90 £0.9 million, 1990–91 £1.6 million, 1991–92 £1.4 million, 1992–93 £2 million (provisional).
This aid has mainly focused on technical co-operation, and specific humanitarian aid—disaster relief. Recent activities have included technical training in the United Kingdom, projects in support of veterinary services to livestock farmers, English language materials and teacher training in secondary schools, and the commissioning of small hydro-electric power plants; and jointly funded projects with British non-governmental organisations in agriculture, community development and health care. Other activities now completed include development of fish products, water leakage control techniques and quality surveillance and cotton pest control.
