§ Mrs. Hart
The British Government's current commitment of capital aid to Malawi expires at the end of this financial year and the purpose of the talks was to discuss the British aid programme in Malawi and to settle the provision of further aid.
We propose to provide the Government of Malawi with not less than£15 million and not more than£18 million for the triennium 1975–76 to 1977–78 depending on the extent to which Malawi benefits from the European Development Fund's aid if she becomes an EEC associate.
