§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, pursuant to his answer of 15 November, Official Report, c. 30, if he will ensure than any development assistance provided to the Falkland Islands is not taken from Overseas Development Administration funds which would otherwise go to Third world countries.
§ Mr. Neil Marten
Decisions on future aid to the Falklands have not yet been taken, and I cannot give the hon. Member the assurance for which he asks.
The Overseas Aid Vote is the most appropriate channel for this expenditure, but it has not yet been determined how far additional provision may be required for this purpose.
