§ Mr. Barnett
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many projects submitted under the aid and trade provision in each of the years since 1979 have been found to be commercially viable but unacceptable on developmental criteria.
§ Mr. Rifkind
Of cases formally presented by the Department of Trade and Industry to ODA, the number turned down for developmental reasons in the years in question were as follows:
Year Number 1979 5 1980 2 1981 1 1982 2 1983 1
In addition, a number of cases on which ODA had expressed preliminary reservations were withdrawn.
