HC Deb 17 July 1991 vol 195 cc224-5W
Mr. Gould

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list, with figures, the total contributions that the Government have made since September 1990 towards the costs that developing countries will incur in complying with the revised Montreal protocol; and what further contributions the Government will undertake before the end of 1993.

Mrs. Chalker

I have been asked to reply.

The Government announced a contribution of up to $15 million to the Montreal protocol funding mechanism in June 1990, to be disbursed over the following three years. There are no present plans for further contributions.
