§ Mr. Bowen Wells
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the extent to which the executive board meeting of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation on 21 June made progress towards the objectives set out in his letter of 4 December 1984 to the Director-General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation.
§ Mr. Raison
The executive board reached a series of complicated decisions which we are now analysing as part of our preparation for the general conference. It is clear that there was some progress, particularly towards administrative improvement and towards a more efficient and less politicised programme; but we shall need to keep up the pressure for reform.
