§ Mr. Atkinson
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he has any plans to extend the scope of the know-how fund for central and eastern European countries to include the education and training of non-governmental organisations in the monitoring of human rights and the practical experience of international law; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Chalker
The main priorities of the know-how fund are to facilitate the transition to a market economy and a plural democracy. We have no immediate plans to extend the scope of the know-how fund as the hon. Gentleman suggests.
