Mr. Gray: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how much and what percentage of the money provided by his Department for the reconstruction of Afghanistan in 2008-09 was given to (a) non-Afghan organisations and (b) non-Afghan companies. 
Mr. Michael Foster: By the end of 2008-09, the Department for International Development (DFID) expects to contribute £143 million of programme support to the reconstruction and development of Afghanistan. DFID has a commitment to spending at least 50 per cent. of its aid through Afghan government systems, for example using the World Bank-managed Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund. This helps build the Afghan government's capacity to provide services for its citizens. 10 per cent. of our assistance (£14.7 million) is provided to non-Afghan organisations and companies to provide technical assistance and capacity building to the Afghan government.
Mr. Gray: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what assessment he has made of the adequacy of aid to Afghanistan for (a) refugees returning to the country, (b) schoolchildren and (c) antenatal care.
