§ Mr. Cranston
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what progress is being made with the White Paper on International Development. 
§ Ms Short
It remains our intention to publish a White Paper on International Development in the Autumn. A process of widespread consultation is underway. I am delighted that there is to be a debate on International Development policies on Tuesday 1 July, during which hon. Members will have an opportunity to feed their thoughts and ideas into the Paper.
