HC Deb 03 December 1980 vol 995 c98W
37. Mr. David Watkins

asked the Lord Privy Seal what was the United Kingdom contribution to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in the Middle East in 1979–80; and what contribution is proposed for 1980–81.

Mr. Neil Marten

In 1979–80 we paid £4.8 million to the agency's 1980 programme budget of $217.2 million. This year we shall provide £5 million towards the 1981 programme budget of $236.9 million. In addition, we are meeting about one-fifth of the European Community's food aid contributions, which in 1980 will cost the Community about $26 million.
