asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what financial assistance Her Majesty's Government provide for the Government of Nicaragua.

There is no regular programme of financial assistance to the Nicaraguan Government.

In addition, we co-finance small development projects with British voluntary agencies and contribute to humanitarian relief work in central America, including Nicaragua. Nicaragua also benefits from European Community aid to the region, to which Britain makes a substantial contribution.
