§ Mr. Cousins
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he has earmarked any of the Government's 1987– 88 contribution for the GOBI programme; and for what purposes.
§ Mr. Chris Patten
We do not earmark our contributions to UNICEF specifically to GOBI measures (growth monitoring, oral rehydration therapy, breast feeding and immunisation). Through our contribution to UNICEF's general fund we support GOBI programmes and initiatives and some of our contributions to UNICEF's special appeals are primarily for these measures, including immunisation.
