To ask Her Majesty's Government what was the total United Kingdom expenditure on bilateral aid for Pakistan in the last year for which figures are available; what was the United Kingdom's contribution to multilateral aid for Pakistan in the same period; and by how much expenditure is planned to increase in each of those categories over the coming three to five years.

In 2013-2014 DFID Pakistan bilateral aid expenditure was approximately £253 million, of which £18 million was spent through multilateral agencies. The 2013-14 DFID Annual report will be published on our website on 15 July, detailing our confirmed figures. Further information on centrally-managed UK aid spending delivered through multilaterals operating in Pakistan is available at: www.gov.uk/government/publications/statistics-on-international-development-2013.

For 2014-2015 DFID Pakistan has been allocated £310 million. This is subject to project performance as well as continued progress with key policy reforms, including on tax. Current plans suggest that £10 million of this will be spent through multilateral agencies. For future years the resource allocation process is underway and no specific budgets have yet been agreed.
