Mr. Worthington

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs which aspects of the Beijing programme of action he is prioritising. [2911]

Mr. Hanley

We plan to discuss with our aid recipient partners their priorities for our support in implementing the global and regional platforms for action. Their response will also influence our approach to the newer priorities highlighted at the conference, including promotion of women in politics and decision making, statistical work, credit, the revision of legal frameworks and capacity building, both of institutions of civil society and of Governments.
