§ Mr. Meacher
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what commitments have already been made out of the planned provision for aid to developing countries for 1993–94, 1994–95 and 1995–96.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
The bulk of multilateral aid spending over the next three years will arise from existing commitments and developments in the EC budget expenditure on aid. Within individual bilateral aid programmes a range of commitments have already been entered into for spending over the next three years. Details of individual commitments could be provided only at a disproportionate cost.
