HC Deb 20 June 1996 vol 279 c548W
Mr. Tony Lloyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of(a) the work of UNIDO and (b) the impact of the restructuring which has taken place within that organisation in terms of value for money; and what discussions he has been involved in concerning its long-term future. [33550]

Mr. Hanley

We have commissioned an external assessment of UNIDO's performance and value as a development agency. We are considering the conclusions of the review in the light of the restructuring that has taken place within UNIDO and in the context of wider UN reform.
