§ Mrs. Dunwoody
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he is satisfied with the existing co-ordination between the various British aid agencies that serve the development programme.
§ Mr. Chris Patten
Yes. I am satisfied with the present degree of co-ordination between the Government and such other bodies as the British Council, the Crown Agents, the Commonwealth Development Corporation, the voluntary agencies, universities and specialist institutions, but I recognise that all concerned have to work hard to achieve our common objective of promoting development.
