§ 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.
