§ Mr. Gurden
asked the Prime Minister what plans he has for the amalgamation or co-ordination of charitable funds for national and international disaster and relief of suffering.
§ The Prime Minister
On the coordination of national disaster funds, I would refer the hon. Gentleman to my reply to a Question by the hon. Member for Bournemouth, East and Christchurch (Mr. Cordle) on 19th December, 1967. The charities principally concerned with international relief have set up their own co-ordinating organisation, the Disasters Emergency Committee.—[Vol. 756, c. 1090–91.]
