§ 36. Mr. Ian Lloyd
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what consultations have taken place with the United States to co-ordinate British and Commonwealth support for United States policy within the various organisations of the United Nations from which a pro rata deduction of that country's contributions has been made to ensure that Western funds are not used to finance terrorist organisations.
§ Mr. Whitney
None. Our long-standing policy, taking into account legal considerations, has been to meet in full our assessed contribution to the United Nations. Where we disagree with the allocation of funds, we say so and seek to have the policy changed. We have made abundantly clear our views on terrorism.
