§ Mr. Dalyell
To ask the Prime Minister what action she has taken to help implement those passages of the Paris summit communique which pertain to the forgiveness of international debt and the preservation of the rain forest.
§ The Prime Minister
It has long been our policy to welcome debt for nature swaps agreed voluntarily between commercial banks, conservation organisations and debtors. The United Kingdom has taken the lead in forgiving ODA debt and had now cancelled nearly £1 billion worth of such debts worldwide.
