§ Mr. McLoughlin
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list the grants funded by his Department for which individual members of the public and organisations may apply; and if he will make a statement as to(a) the total of such funding in the last financial year, (b) the total number of awards and (c) their administrative costs. 
§ Mr. Rammell
The FCO funds grants for Education, the Environment, Human Resources and other projects. The total funding in 2001/02 was £58 million.
The administration of grant programmes is carried out by a number of different units within the department to which a range of staff make a contribution. It is not possible to provide an accurate estimate of these costs centrally.
