HC Deb 18 April 1980 vol 982 c731W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will now give additional support to the Child-to-Child programme; if he will raise the need for support of the programme in the World Health Organisation; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Neil Marten

The current grant of £115,307 to the Child-to-Child programme runs until March 1982 and I have received no request for increased support.

The World Health Organisation appears to me already to be well aware of the merits of the programme and to require no further prompting. It also supports many other activities geared to the improvement of children's health in developing countries.
