Mr. Watson

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assistance the Government will provide to the Palestine National Authority during 1995. [20420]

Mr. Baldry

We are committed to providing £82 million over three years from 1994–95 to support the Palestinian Authority and the peace process. This includes contributions through the European Union and other multilateral organisations, notably the United Nations relief and works agency. Our bilateral aid includes a £1.25 million project in support of the Palestinian police and a £5 million know-how programme announced by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister in March. Our aid priorities are good government, finance and private enterprise, water, health and education.
