HC Deb 11 November 1985 vol 86 c35W
80. Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make it his policy to spend more of the aid budget on training people from developing countries in agriculture and development technology in Britain.

Mr. Raison

I fully agree on the importance of training. We would be happy to consider requests from recipient Governments for a higher proportion of our aid to be spent for this purpose.
