§ Lord Redesdale
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they can list all ATP projects over £5 million since 1992, and those ATP projects which have been deemed unacceptable by the Overseas Development Administration's Projects and Evaluation Committee, including each project's value.
§ Baroness Chalker of Wallasey
Since 1992 agreements have been concluded on the following ATP projects with an ATP value of over £5 million.32WA
Country Project ATP value £million China Urumqi PTA (Petro-chemical plant) 33.745 China Fushun Heat and Power 11.694 China Urumqi PX (Petro-chemical plant) 13.045 Philippines Navigational Aids 6.435 Turkey Ankara Metro 22.250 Morocco Tetouan Gas Turbines 10.925
All the above projects were approved before the requirement for consideration by ODA's Projects and Evaluation Committee (PEC) was introduced in June 1993 for projects with an ATP grant of £5 million and above. Since that date the PEC has considered five ATP projects, none of which it deemed unacceptable. None of the projects recommended for approval by the PEC has, however, yet reached the stage of formal agreement with the recipient government.
