HC Deb 11 December 1980 vol 995 c427W
Q9. Mr.Soley

asked the Prime Minister, if, in view of increasing scientific concern about the global climate, she will provide financial assistance to the International Council for Research into Agro-Forestry.

The Prime Minister

The International Council for Research in Agro-Forestry is concerned with the relationships between forestry and agriculture, particularly the associated local problems such as soil erosion and flooding. Britain provides bilateral aid in this field to many countries and we have no plans at present to assist the council financially.
