§ Mr. Tom Clarke
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what plans he has to amend the procedures relating to the aid and trade provision in the light of the findings of the Foreign Affairs Committee in its third report of Session 1993–94.
§ Mr. Baldry
The Government set out our detailed observations in our response, Cm 2672, to the Foreign Affairs Committee's report. The Committee concluded that in principle the thrust of the reforms introduced in June 1993 following the ATP review was to be broadly welcomed, and that the ATP should continue. The Government have no immediate plans for further amendments to the procedures for operating the ATP, but they remain under constant review.
