HC Deb 06 March 2002 vol 381 c338W
Mrs. Spelman

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what action her Department is taking to combat urban poverty in Cameroon. [39471]

Clare Short

This is in recognition of the forestry sector's importance to the Cameroonian economy and the fact that a majority of poor people live in the forest zone.
