§ Sir Alastair Goodlad
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development in respect of which countries Know How Fund support will be(a) reduced or(b) discontinued in 1998–99. 
§ Mr. Foulkes
The Know How Fund is managed with some flexibility between country programmes within financial years. Levels of expenditure will depend partly on emerging needs and speed of project implementation. Our aim is to reduce expenditure over time on the countries most advanced in transition. Support is not being discontinued in any country in 1998–99.
