HC Deb 13 March 1981 vol 1000 cc434-5W
Mr. Guy Barnett

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether his Department will be taking part in the survey of disaster response which the United Nations Secretary General is currently undertaking.

Mr. Hurd

Yes. The Secretary-General is expected shortly to publish a report about co-ordination of disaster relief in the last decade, which will be considered by the United Nations Economic and Social Council in July. Our delegation will join actively in the search for a solution to the problems of co-ordination.
