13. To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what recent representations he has received on the use of UK development funds in the poorest countries in Africa; and if he will make a statement. (182983)

The Department for International Development receives a wide variety of representations on the use of UK development funds in poor African countries, including from African Governments, regional institutions, the International Financial Institutions, other donors, non-governmental organisations, the private sector, and members of the public. Assisting the poorest African countries is a priority of this Government, as it is critical for achievement of the millennium development goals.
