Her Majesty's Government what level of grant-in-aid funding was provided to each service within the BBC World Service in each of the financial years 1987–88 to 2014–15; and, for each service, how much of that funding was allocated to (1) operating grants-in-aid, and (2) capital grants.

The overall information on grant-in-aid funding to the BBC World Service is available to Parliament through the Supplementary Estimates, however the information for each service is not available. The Supplementary Estimates should be available online for a large part of the period in question but the Parliamentary library should hold the information for the whole period in question.
