asked the Minister of Overseas Development what total of aid for the developing countries is allowed for in the National Plan for 1970.

No figures have been given in the National Plan. As the plan points out, the amount of aid we give must be subject to restraint while our balance of payments difficulties persist. Only a small rise over current levels has been provided for, but the size of the aid programme will be reviewed periodically in the light of the progress made in overcoming our economic problems.
