HC Deb 03 March 1967 vol 742 cc173-4W
Mr. Judd

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what is the extent of Governmental co-operation with and financial support for the Intermediate Technology Development Group; and, in particular, what support is being provided by his Department for the Tools for Progress campaign.

Mr. Oram

The Intermediate Technology Development Group is a nonprofit making organisation concerned with developing countries which advocates the greater use of low-cost labour-intensive techniques. Members of the Ministry of Overseas Development attend meetings of the Group's executive and technical committees as observers. We have not given them any official support. The Board of Trade is assisting the Group with the dis- tribution of an illustrated guide to British tools and equipment for developing countries.
