asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will publish in the Official Report a list of the projects aided by the United Kingdom in the overseas development programme in each of the past two years and the current year, indicating the sums expended and the countries involved.

No. Listing information on all United Kingdom-aided projects would involve great effort at disproportionate cost. Full details of expenditure by country for the period 1973–1977 are shown in the latest edition of "British Aid Statistics" (1978), a copy of which is in the Library. Similar information for 1978 was given in the reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Aldridge-Brown-hills (Mr. Shepherd) on 25 May 1979.
