§ Mr. Benn
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make it his policy to give consideration to applications from non-governmental organisations with a central interest in nuclear proliferation, for funds to support their attendance at the 1990 fourth review conference of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.632W
§ Mr. Waldegrave
The draft rules of procedure for the 1990 non-proliferation treaty review conference adopted at the 1st preparatory committee (held in New York from 1–5 May) will allow representatives of non-governmental organisations to attend plenary sessions and main committees of the review conference, and to receive the documents of the conference. However, it is not our policy to subsidise their attendance.
