39. Mr. Etherington

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the Government's current policy on overseas aid in respect of tropical forests.

The Government's policy is to help promote the sustainable management of tropical forests and their biodiversity. We have substantially increased our bilateral aid activities to this end and encouraged other donors to do likewise.
