§ Mr. Sorensen
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will now give fuller information respecting the allocation of the grant made or to be made by His Majesty's Government to the International Children's Emergency Fund.
§ Mr. Mayhew
The original intention of His Majesty's Government was to make a grant of £50,000 to the Lord Mayor's United Nations Appeal for Children and £50,000 to the International Children's Emergency Fund. On the suggestion of the Lord Mayor's Appeal Committee and with the concurrence of His Majesty's Government, it has now, however, been decided that when the Lord Mayor's Appeal has reached the sum of £500,000, His Majesty's Government will make a grant of £100,000 direct to the International Children's Emergency Fund. This, it is understood, will attract a matching contribution from the United States Government.
