1990–91 808
1991–92 5,310
1992–93 11,659
1993–94 5,725

The latest figures available for the estimated United Kingdom share of multilateral disbursements of net official development assistance to Trinidad and Tobago are:

Year £ million
1989 0.29
1990 0.97
1991 0.33

The distribution of aid resources for the public expenditure survey period 1995–96–1997–98 is currently being considered and no final decisions have yet been made.
