§ 59. Mr. Kirkwood
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what proportion of aid to African nations is designated for development of transportation systems.
§ Mr. Chris Patten
In 1985, 19 per cent.—some £18.7 million —of our project aid for Africa was spent on the transport and communications sector. In addition we financed 87 man-years of expert and volunteer work in the same sector.
