asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will be prepared to allocate additional aid (over and above that already planned for and announced) to Zimbabwe to help that country recover from its present economic crisis; and, if so, how much and on what conditions. [HL399]
§ Lord Whitty:
The International Monetary Fund is discussing with Zimbabwe the measures that are needed to stabilise the economy. British aid, including additional aid for economic reforms, will only be considered in the context of a partnership with Zimbabwe to eliminate poverty.
