HC Deb 20 April 1994 vol 241 c558W
Dr. Marek

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, pursuant to her answer of 13 April, what financial contribution is to be provided for the initiative being undertaken for Mauritius by the royal botanic gardens, Kew.

Mr. Jack

Two ex-horticulture diploma students from Kew are currently working on a voluntary basis with the Mauritian Wild Life Appeal Fund, supported partly by donations from several Kew-based scholarship funds. Work at Kew on propagation of a number of Mauritian endangered species for eventual reintroduction to their original habitats is supported from Ministry grant-in-aid. The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, has yet to decide on future collaborative activity and levels of funding.
