Mr. Foulkes

Our provisional plans are to spend £5 million from bilateral aid funds in Bosnia in 1998–99.

My Department's contributions to multilateral aid agencies for the coming year are not yet confirmed. Allocations are reported after expenditure.

The expenditure for 1997–98 is expected to be £18.75 million which includes £17 million of emergency aid.
