HC Deb 14 May 1985 vol 79 c94W
Mr. Bowen Wells

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he would be willing to send a further observer, on his behalf, to find out and report on how much food and cereals have been delivered, to those who are starving in sub-Saharan Africa, out of the commitments entered into by the Heads of EC Governments at Dublin.

Mr. Raison

We receive information periodically from the Commission on the amounts of food delivered from European Community programmes and by other member states. We also receive reports on delivers from the relevant international organizations. I see no need to send a further observer although I will continue to monitor progress closely.
