45. Mr. Barnes

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what percentage of gross domestic product has been allocated to overseas aid in the currently financial year. [32800]

International comparison of aid flow figures are normally presented in relation to gross national product on a calendar year basis. In 1994, the latest year for which figures are available, UK net official development assistance was 0.31 per cent. of GNP.
