asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he has any plans to increase bilateral aid and assistance to countries on the United Nations list facing abnormal food shortages.
I announced last week some £11·3 million of emergency assistance to Mozambique, including up to 30,000 tonnes of food aid. I shall publish details of our aid to other countries on the list in the Official Report.Following is the information:
|United Kingdom emergency and food aid in 1987 to countries facing abnormal food shortages|
|Food aid £ million1||Relief assistance £ million1|
(1) This table only includes allocations (and deliveries of food aid) made in the first three months of 1987.
