§ Mr. Dalyell
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he hopes to meet non-governmental organisations on the rain forest; and if he will make a statement to the House subsequent to the meeting.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
My right hon. Friend the Minister for Overseas Development has regular contact with representatives of the non-governmental organisations on environmental matters including the rain forests. She or ODA officials are ready to meet NGO representatives at short notice if issues arise which require this.
