HC Deb 28 February 1995 vol 255 cc467-8W
Mr. Dafis

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will include in the United Kingdom overseas aid programme provision for financial assistance to the Government of Suriname for the purpose of strengthening the Surinamese forest management service.

Mr. Baldry

We provide substantial assistance in promoting sustainable forest management to a number of countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, including Brazil, Mexico, Ecuador, Honduras and Guyana, but we have no plans to introduce a bilateral aid programme to Suriname.
