HC Deb 03 December 1992 vol 215 c302W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what contribution Her Majesty's Government has made to the interim multilateral fund to assist the developing nations to phase out CFCs; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I have been asked to reply. We have paid the equivalent of US$3.443 million to the interim fund which meets the United Kingdom's full share of approved projects and support costs up to June 1992. We are firmly committed to providing the remainder of our share of the US$240 million fund.
