Mr Bungey asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs, upon notice:

(   1 ) What direct or indirect aid has been given by Australia to Mozambique and Angola following the cessation of Portuguese control of those countries?

(2)   What was the nature and amount of all such aid?

Mr Peacock - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(   1 ) and (2)1 refer the honourable member to my reply to Question No. 784 on 17 August 1976 (Hansard, pages 247-248). Since Mozambique gained independence on 25 June 1975, Australia has contributed an amount of $US 100,000 to a special fund established under the Commonwealth Fund for Technical Co-operation for technical assistance to Mozambique.

Australia has also offered Mozambique food aid to the value of $lm (including freight). Details are still in the process of negotiation. No aid has been given to Angola since it became independent on 1 1 November 1975.
