HC Deb 07 March 2000 vol 345 cc624-5W
Mr. Gale

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development if she will publish the results of the review, conducted by her Department in 1998–99, of the activities of the European Children's Trust in Romania supported by the Know-how Fund; what action was taken by her Department as a result of that review; and if she will make a statement. [113127]

Mr. Foulkes

I assume the review to which the hon. Member refers concerns a report that DFID commissioned by the National Institute of Social Work in 1998. This report evaluated a programme of child welfare activities in Romania that we supported between 1995 and 1998, undertaken by the European Children's Trust. I will place a copy of the report, which was passed to the Romanian authorities, in the Library of the House. No specific action was necessary as a result of the report, but relevant lessons identified by the report's authors have been taken into account in discussions on further assistance in this field, currently under way with the Romanian Government.
