HC Deb 08 December 1982 vol 33 c501W
Mr. Lennox-Boyd

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will announce the extent of Government financial support for the Voluntary Services Organisation and other voluntary agencies in the year 1983–84; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Neil Marten

I hope very shortly to be able to inform the societies, members of the British volunteer programme, and the other societies in receipt of grants from the overseas aid and other overseas services vote of their financial allocation for 1983–84, subject to parliamentary approval.
