To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what advice and financial aid from his Ministry has been given to Czechoslovakia since 1989.
§ Mr. Gummer
Financial aid to the Czech and Slovak Republics is the responsibility of my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs. My Department has had many contacts at ministerial and official level concerning advice to the Czech and Slovak Republics, particularly regarding state farm privatisation and training in seeds and plant varieties matters. In addition, my Department has arranged the exhibition and donation of agricultural books to universities in the Czech and Slovak Republics.
