Lord Rodney

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action they are taking to assist the Government of Mozambique in relation to sensitive coastal regions as part of the Africa programme (IMO-MEPC 37) to implement the Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Cooperation Convention; and whether any such action includes direct finance and the use of the DTI Breeze project.

Viscount Goschen

Her Majesty's Government, through the Overseas Development Administration, is providing funding for a project to improve contingency planning for oil spills in Africa, which involves Mozambique. No support is being provided through the Department of Trade and Industry Breeze project.
