EAST-WEST RELATIONS-Europe s Assigned Role

EGS. Recovery is spread over several years and falls due from the second year after work is completed. What costs have actually been recovered we do not as yet know as the Revenue Department has not been able to issue any figures. What we do know is that by the end of March 1976 for instance some 900 canals and tanks for minor and major irrigation works had been completed and over 2,000 soil conser- vation works as well. By March 1977 the figures for completed works had risen to 1,500 canals, tanks, etc, and over 5,000 soil conservation works.
