asked the Lord Privy Seal what amount of aid Her Majesty's Government currently are giving to assist the fishing industries of the developing nations; and to what countries.
Capital aid to the fishing industries of the developing countries is estimated at £2·3 million in the current financial year. The main countries involved are Burma, Gilbert Islands, Lesotho, Malawi, St. Helena, Seychelles, Solomon Islands, Sudan, Tanzania and Tuvalu. In addition, we provide technical assistance in various forms and I shall write to my hon. Friend forwarding additional details as soon as possible.
