I am writing in reply to your Questions laid before the House on 12 December 2000, I apologise for the delay in answering.You asked Her Majesty's Government the following three questions: for what purpose they allocated £14 million to Zimbabwe in the last financial year; for what purposes the £14 million allocated to Zimbabwe is intended to be used by the Government of Zimbabwe in this financial year; and for what purposes the £14 million allocated to Zimbabwe is intended to be used by the Government of Zimbabwe in the next financial year.Total DfID spend in Zimbabwe in 1999–2000 was £14,029,000. This, however, was rounded to produce the £14 million figure. The actual expenditure by major activity in Zimbabwe for the last financial year (1999–2000) and planned expenditure for the current financial year (2000–01) is best explained in the table which I attach at Appendix 1. The allocation for 2001–02 is £12 million. Major spending activities will be broadly similar to those described for the current financial year.
