China: Aid

Volume 707: debated on Tuesday 27 January 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how much the United Kingdom donated in aid to China over the past 12 months; and how much money was channelled through the United Nations Population Fund and International Planned Parenthood Federation to the Chinese Population Association in each of the past five years. [HL448]

The United Kingdom's development programme with China was £38.5 million in 2008. Between 2004 and 2006, the Department for International Development (DfID) provided the United Nations Family Planning Association with £99,000 to assist with monitoring and evaluation of family planning surveys carried out by UNFPA. None of this money was channelled to the China Population Association. The DfID programme in China provided no funds during the past five years to the International Parenthood Association.
