§ 31. Mr. Deakins
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how the special United Kingdom aid programme in sub-Saharan Africa will be co-ordinated with that of the World Bank.
§ Mr. Raison
We expect to agree in advance with the bank proposals for associating our money with the African special facility in joint operations in particular countries. Where the bank makes a commitment we would express our part of that commitment in a separate aid agreement with the beneficiary. We would be working together to support specific reform programmes.
