Mr. Parry

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the recent visit by the Minister for Overseas Development to Somalia and Kenya.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

In Somalia, my noble Friend the Minister for Overseas Development had discussions in Mogadishu, Baidoa and Hargeisa on the future prospects for relief and rehabilitation. She met key United Nations and United States officials engaged in "Operation Restore Hope" and representatives of British non-governmental organisations.

In Kenya, Baroness Chalker discussed political and economic issues with President Moi and other Kenyan leaders. She also visited a drought-affected district in the north-east to see relief and rehabilitation work.
