HC Deb 18 January 1996 vol 269 c679W
Mr. Galloway

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how much overseas aid has been granted by Her Majesty's Government to Dominica in each year since 1990; and how much will be awarded in 1996. [9321]

Mr. Hanley

I refer the hon. Member to my answer to the hon. Member for Blaenau Gwent (Mr. Smith) on 16 January 1996,Official Report, column 507 regarding past aid disbursements to Dominica.

The aid figure for 1995–96 is not yet known. It is likely to be somewhat higher than in 1994–95 but will depend on how quickly the problem of Dominica's repayment arrears is resolved, and our capital aid programme resumed.
