HC Deb 14 March 2001 vol 364 c657W
12. Mr. Rowe

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what plans she has to engage with the UK youth parliament to further the objectives of her Department. [152220]

Clare Short

Raising young people's awareness and understanding of development issues is the top priority of my Department's development awareness work, and we are working with the formal and development education sectors to achieve this. Currently we are not directly engaged with the UK youth parliament. However we will follow its work with interest and will seek suitable opportunities to share information on international development issues.
