§ 82. Mr. Prentice
asked the Lord Privy Seal what was the total contribution by Her Majesty's Government to technical assistance programmes of the United Nations and its agencies during 1961; and what was the comparable figure for 1960.
§ Mr. Godber
Her Majesty's Government's contributions to the United Nations for technical assistance totalled £3,242,100 in 1961 and £3,246,100 in 1960. In addition some provision for technical assistance is made in the regular budgets of the United Nations and of certain of the Specialised Agencies. Her Majesty's Government contribute to these budgets on an assessed basis but it is not possible to say how much of these contributions is spent on technical assistance.
