HC Deb 28 January 1981 vol 997 c420W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether, to promote the aims of the International year of Disabled People, the Government will allocate additional funds for programmes to prevent disability in the developing nations.

Mr. Hurd

The Government recently contributed £3,000 to the United Kingdom secretariat for the International year of Disabled People to promote contacts with organisations concerned with disability in developing countries. About 10 per cent. of the aid programme goes towards health programmes, which in most cases contribute to the prevention of disability.
