HC Deb 03 May 1983 vol 42 c19W
Mr. Dorrell

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether, in view of the resolution on world population and development adopted by the joint committee of the African, Caribbean and Pacific countries of the European Community consultative assembly on 24 February, the Overseas Development Administration will brief British Members of the European Parliament on the role and scale of population projects in the British development aid programme.

Mr. Raison

In view of the importance of the relationship between population and economic and social development, we welcome the ACP/EC resolution. The ODA will be happy to provide British Members of the European Parliament with the information suggested.
