(2)   If so, which are those countries.

(3)   What amount of aid was voted by each of these countries, including Australia, for (a) the current financial year and (b) the financial year 1969-70.

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

I am informed that at least 12 countries are contributing aid to Indonesia within the context of the Inter-Governmental Group for Indonesia.

Details are listed below of estimated aid commitments by these donor countries. Comparable figures are not available for commitments by other countries including the Soviet Union. It should be noted that commitments for a particular year are frequentlynot the same as aid actually spent in that year.
