§ Mr. Morris
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how much of the money made available to British non-governmental organisations by the Overseas Development Administration in 1995–96 was provided specifically for work in developing countries with disabled people; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Hanley
The ODA made available £2,397,419 in 1995–96 to British non-governmental organisations specifically for work with disabled people in developing countries.
The Overseas Development Administration recognises that disabled people are often among the poorest and most vulnerable in society. We aim to assist disabled people to participate in development through a process that creates economic independence and self-help and in which they are involved in the decisions and planning that most closely affect them.
