HC Deb 19 April 1995 vol 258 cc152-3W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how much development aid is being given by the United Kingdom to South Africa in 1994–95 and 1995–96(a) as bilateral aid, (b) through the European development fund and (c) through other multi-lateral initiative. [18878]

Mr. Baldry

Bilateral aid expenditure in 1994–95 is estimated to be £15 million. In 1995–96 we expect expenditure to be about £20 million. EC aid to South Africa is provided not through the European development fund but under a specific line in the EC's budget. The UK share of the EC allocation was about £15 million in 1994 and about £17 million for 1995. To date, no loans have been made by the World bank or African development bank; our contributions through the various United Nations programmes are not readily attributable to individual countries.
