115. Mr. Dalyell

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he has made an assessment of the results of the visit to Brazil of the right hon. Member for Bath (Mr. Patten) to discuss Amazonian rain-forest issues with the Brazilian Government.

Mrs. Chalker

Its main purpose was to sign a memorandum of understanding on technical co-operation on environmental matters, which provides the framework for our proposed assistance programme with Brazil in this area. I wrote to the hon. Member on 3 November giving details of progress on the first projects.
