HC Deb 16 May 1977 vol 932 c7W
Mr. Rhodes James

asked the Minister of Overseas Development why no financial contribution has been made or is intended by Her Majesty's Government to the United Nations' University.

Mrs. Hart

With the present constraints on public expenditure, I am unable to give a high priority to a direct financial contribution to the United Nations' University, though some modest indirect help is being given through my Ministry's Tropical Products Institute. I hope that the university will not hesitate to draw on British academic and intellectual resources for the carrying out of its programme.
