HC Deb 24 November 1997 vol 301 c447W
Mr. Fitzpatrick

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development if she will list current British aid projects in El Salvador. [16910]

Mr. Foulkes

In addition to a £100,000 British Partnership Scheme, administered by the British Embassy in San Salvador, which enables support to be provided for small local development projects, we are currently supporting the following projects through the Department for International Development (DFID) Joint Funding Scheme.

Organisation Project title DFID contribution (£)
Health Unlimited Relief and training programme 257,000
International Co-operation for Development Institutional strengthening of NGOs 67,827

It is likely that additional projects in El Salvador will be supported this year through the block grant arrangement of the Joint Funding Scheme, which operates on the basis of claims in arrears. Twenty-eight CAFOD, Christian Aid and Oxfam projects in El Salvador were supported in this way last year.
