HC Deb 14 April 1969 vol 781 c211W
62. Mr. Ronald Bell

asked the Minister of Transport what grant he proposes to pay in respect of the service on the High Wycombe to Marylebone line; what grant he estimates will be paid for a similar service into Paddington; and on what basis the difference between the two figures is calculated.

Mr. Marsh

As I explained in my Answer to the hon. Member on 28th March, I am paying grant for the present service at the rate of £552,000 for 1969. I cannot yet announce the level of grant which would be required for an Aylesbury-High Wycombe-Paddington service, since this will require a detailed review of the proposed new service, including a complete reallocation of the costs of the joint facilities between Northolt Junction and Paddington.—[Vol. 780, c.383–4.]

Organisation Headquarters 1968–69 Estimates
United Nations Relief and Works Agency Beirut 1,875,000
United Nations Development Programme New York 4,900,000
United Nations Childrens' Fund 500,000
United Nations Water Desalination Programme 10,000
United Nations Trust Fund for Population Activities 40,000
United Nations Education and Training Programme for Southern Africa 40,000
World Food Programme Rome 1,100,000
Food and Agriculture Organisation Fertilisers 40,000
International Agency for Research on Cancer Geneva 63,000
United Nations Institute for Training and Research New York 47,950

Further information on the United Nations Agencies involved is contained in the United Nations Year Book, a copy of which is in the Library of the House.

Her Majesty's Government also contributed £19,050,000 in 1968–69 to the International Development Association.

I regret that it would require a disproportionate expenditure of time and money to provide a more complete answer and many other Departments would be involved.
