Mr. B. Harrison
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what economic assistance has recently been given by Her Majesty's Government to Morocco.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
There is no regular programme of economic aid to Morocco, but Her Majesty's Government operate a modest technical assistance programme. In addition to this, they have recently made to the Moroccan Government a gift of vehicles to a value 229W of £25,000. Parliament will in due course be asked to vote the necessary funds for this gift by means of a Supplementary Estimate. In the meantime an advance will be obtained from the Civil Contingencies Fund.
