asked Her Majesty's Government:

What were the specific outcomes of the 25th May Development Council meeting discussions in Brussels on population policy and to what specific action is the Government committed.

Baroness Chalker of Wallasey

The council noted preliminary work undertaken at expert level since the adoption of its resolution in November 1992 on family planning in population policies in developing countries. The council requested that this work should be pursued and that the Commission should submit a further report for its next meeting in October.
