To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what steps she is taking to promote awareness of development issues among young people. 
§ Mr. Foulkes
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and I have visited many schools and colleges on each of our visits to towns and cities throughout the UK and found great enthusiasm for development issues. Expanding the coverage of these issues in the school curriculum is our top priority and we are pursuing this with other Departments and agencies in relation to each part of the United Kingdom.
