HC Deb 14 December 1994 vol 251 c673W
Mr. Bowden

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what contribution his Department has made in 1994 to follow up European Year of Older People and Solidarity between Generations in 1993.

Mr. Arbuthnot

The year 1994 is viewed both in the United Kingdom and within the Community as a year of evaluation and consolidation of the achievements of the European year. We maintain close links with the voluntary sector and have provided the sum of £20,000 towards the setting up of a small secretariat to take this work forward.
