HC Deb 21 November 1960 vol 630 cc75-6W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Minister of Health how much was contributed by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics to the malaria eradication special account of the World Health Organisation during 1960; how much has been promised by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics for 1961; and how much will be given by the United Kingdom.

Mr. Powell

The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, in the period 1st January to 30th September, 1960, contributed in kind—not in currency—the equivalent of $250,000 to this account. The amount promised for 1961 is not known.

As regards the last part of the Question, I have nothing to add to my predecessor's reply to the hon. Member on 28th March.
