Mr. Ted Fletcher
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what financial contribution the Government are prepared to make to the United Nations for its campaign for world disarmament.
§ Mr. Rifkind
The United Nations Secretary-General has been asked to submit to the thirty-seventh session of the General Assembly specific proposals for a programme for the world disarmament campaign, and to report on possible redeployment of existing United Nations resources for its operation. We and our partners in the European Community will then consider whether voluntary contributions are needed, bearing in mind that much is already being carried out in Western Europe to inform the public about disarmament issues.
