asked the Minister of Overseas Development for what purpose her Department is making available a grant of £25,000 to War on Want; what sum was made available in 1976–77; and what steps are taken to monitor its expenditure.

This grant, which is being provided under the joint funding scheme which I announced on 8th May 1975, is towards the cost of an agricultural mechanisation and evaluation project in Bangladesh. No funds were issued in 1976–77. All agencies receiving support under the scheme have to account for their expenditure and provide regular reports.
