§ Mr. John Fraser
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what contribution the United Kingdom will make to the United Nations international children's emergency fund programme of vaccination of children by 1990.
§ Mr. Chris Patten
We expect to continue to contribute to UNICEF's regular budget, which underpins the immunisation programme, and from time to time to special appeals. Much of our £1 million response to the latest UNICEF special appeal for Africa is being spent on immunisation programmes. I am considering the possibility of further help and will be discussing the issue with UNICEF shortly.
