To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the total sum spent on overseas aid by the EU in the most recent year for which figures are available; and which committee or Department makes decisions on the issuing of individual grants. [28777]

Mr. Baldry

In 1993, the last year for which figures are available, total European Community overseas assistance was $4287.5 million of which $3637.2 million was net official development assistance to developing countries. Individual spending proposals are assessed by management committees on which ODA represents the UK.
