§ Mr. Ashdown
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what discussions he has had with the Child Migrants Trust in response to its request for funding; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
I have been in correspondence with members of the Child Migrants Trust concerning individuals' efforts to trace their roots and the possibility of Government support for the trust. My officials have met and are in contact with representatives of the Child Migrants Trust to discuss how my Department might assist them. However, I am unable to make a decision about the trust's grant application until it provides the extra information we have requested.
