§ 122. Mr. Tony Banks
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has received regarding support from Her Majesty's Government for animal conservation schemes.
§ Mrs. Chalker
We regularly receive such representations, from a wide variety of sources, ranging from interested members of the public to official requests for assistance from NGOs and overseas Governments. No central record of such representations is kept, but recently many have concerned support for elephant and rhino conservation in east Africa. We are already funding a number of such activities and are always ready to consider new requests for help.
