HC Deb 17 December 1963 vol 686 cc184-5W
60. Mr. Prentice

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what further steps will be taken by the Government in support of the United Nations Development Decade as a result of the meeting of the Economic and Social Council in Geneva this summer.

Mr. P. Thomas

The Council's Resolution No. 984 dealt with this subject, which was also the less direct concern of other resolutions adopted at Geneva this summer. The texts of the resolutions adopted are in the Library of the House. The United Kingdom delegation took a leading part in the debates which led to the adoption of Resolution No. 984. We are maintaining, and in some cases increasing, our contributions to the development aid efforts which form the foundation of the United Nations Development Decade.
