HC Deb 06 March 1995 vol 256 c23W
Mr. Denham

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what sums will be available to the aid budget in 1996–97 as a consequence of the decision to fund the Pergau dam and other aid and trade provision projects from reserves.

Mr. Baldry

The planning figure for the 1996–97 aid programme remains as announced by my right hon. and learned Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 29 November 1994. As my right hon. Friend and Foreign Secretary made clear in his statement to the House on 13 December 1994, final figures for the aid programme in 1996–97 and later years will as usual be determined during the annual public expenditure survey in the light of all relevant factors.
