HC Deb 21 January 1975 vol 884 c324W
Mr. Blaker

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what commitment the Government intend to make to the new International Agricultural Development Fund.

Mrs. Hart

As I told the House on 25th November—[Vol. 882, c. 34–5]—the Secretary-General of the United Nations will be convening a meeting of interested countries and institutions to work out the details of the proposed fund, and the Government will be represented there. The question of United Kingdom contribution to this fund will be decided in the light of the outcome of that meeting.
