HC Deb 18 November 1968 vol 773 c194W
Mr. Frank Judd

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will make a statement on Her Majesty's Government's policy on the future of the United Nations Consolidated Education and Training Programme for Southern Africans.

Mr. Goronwy Roberts

Her Majesty's Government believe that this programme, which combines earlier programmes in respect of South Africa, South West Africa and the Portuguese Territories of Angola and Mozambique does much good work. They support its objectives in the same way as they did those of the earlier programmes. Accordingly, my right hon. and noble Friend Lord Caradon has informed the Secretary-General that, subject to Parliamentary approval, Her Majesty's Government will make a contribution of £41,667 to it. Parliament will be asked to approve the necessary supplementary estimate in due course. In the meantime, an advance will be sought from the Civil Contingencies Fund.
