    Millions of pounds were lost in Western aid.

    Millions of pounds were lost in Western aid.

    I'm sorry to put forward the question again, but could it mean that millions of pounds of Western aid were lost?

    Re: Millions of pounds were lost in Western aid.

    Logically, since it is unlikely that aid would be going to the 'West" -wherefrom? : the more underdeveloped countries?? Why???- then, yes, a native speaker would 'understand' what was intended...but think that it was very poorly expressed, as opposed to
    Millions of pounds in Western aid were lost .
