asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what percentage of United Kingdom and European Community aid to Ethiopia and Sudan is dedicated to population control policies.
None of our bilateral aid to Ethiopia and the Sudan is directed at population related activities. Nor, we have been advised by the European Commission, is the European Community's aid to those countries. We do, however, provide financial assistance to the United Nations Fund for Population Activities and the International Planned Parenthood Federation, both of which have programmes in Ethiopia. The UNFPA also has a programme in the Sudan.
