§ Mr. Hunter
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a direct contribution to the funds of political parties in Mozambique for political training and the development of political structures.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
[holding answer 21 March 1994]: The Rome peace accords, endorsed by the international community, envisaged assistance to allow RENAMO to participate in the elections as an essential step towards democracy.
We propose to help with the democratic process in Mozambique by contributing £500,000 to the United 25W Nations trust fund for the implementation of the peace process in Mozambique. Our contribution is subject to confirmation of the agreement of the Government of Mozambique. Several other major donors are already contributing.
