HC Deb 23 January 1979 vol 961 c91W
Mr. Bowden

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what plans Her Majesty's Government have to give official and financial support to holding a World Assembly on Ageing in 1982, planned by the United Nations.

Mr. Luard

The United Kingdom supported the recent United Nations General Assembly resolution proclaiming the world assembly. No estimate of the cost will be available until completion of the Assembly's draft programme, to be prepared by the United Nations Secretary-General in consultation with Governments.
