HC Deb 20 July 1987 vol 120 c22W
72. Mr. Matthew Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what new proposals he intends to institute with regard to training and education for women in the Third world.

Mr. Chris Patten

We are encouraging aid-recipient Governments to nominate more women for training under our aid programme. We are also commissioning independent research into the constraints which limit nominations. When I know the results of these initiatives, I will decide whether further actions are necessary.
