§ Mr. Ieuan Wyn Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of the adequacy of arrangements for the participation of non-governmental organisations in the United Nations fourth international conference on women. 
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
The Chinese authorities have accepted the criteria for arrangements at the conference set by the NGO facilitating committee. We are concerned that facilities should be consistent with those provided at other UN conferences and will continue to monitor progress made by the Chinese to meet their commitments.
§ Mr. Goodlad
[holding answer 19 June 1995]: None. Peking was chosen in accordance with the UN practice that the venue of the world conference on women should rotate geographically. The Chinese Government are fully aware of UK concerns about their family planning policy and its implementation.
