Volume 462: debated on Wednesday 11 July 2007

12. To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what steps he is taking to improve the mechanisms for the delivery of aid to Africa. (148669)

DFID is strongly committed to improving the delivery of aid in Africa. In 2005 we helped secure international agreement for principles to improve the effectiveness of donors’ efforts. We have improved predictability of our aid by making multi-year commitments of budget support, for instance in Ghana, Tanzania and Mozambique and have a strong set of controls to manage the risk of misuse of funds, and we seek to strengthen partner Government financial systems.
