HC Deb 17 July 1995 vol 263 c945W
43. Mr. Rowe

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list the grants given by his Department as overseas development aid to assist in the treatment and rehabilitation of disability. [32798]

Mr. Hanley

In 1994–95, we made grants of £985,000 through the joint funding scheme in support of 52 projects directly concerned with disabled people. In addition, providing assistance to people with disabilities forms an integral part of many of our programmes concerned with improving the health of poor people in developing countries.
