HC Deb 20 November 1985 vol 87 c196W
84. Mr. Fisher

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on United Kingdom membership of UNESCO.

Mr. Raison

The UNESCO general conference finished on 9 November. Ministers will now consider whether, in the light of the results of the conference, taken together with any other relevant developments in the organisation during this year, enough has been achieved to warrant reconsideration of the British decisions to withdraw.
