HC Deb 16 January 1992 vol 201 cc629-30W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Prime Minister if he will set out the steps taken by each Department of Her Majesty's Government, respectively, to prepare for the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development to be held in Rio de Janeiro in June.

The Prime Minister

The Department of the Environment is responsible for co-ordinating the Government's approach to UNCED. Within this overall framework other departments have set up their own arrangements for contributing on appropriate matters to preparations for the conference. I am taking a close personal interest as I expect to lead the United Kingdom delegation in Rio de Janeiro.
