asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether, in view of the fact that applications for finance for six population or family planning projects under the joint funding scheme for the year 1982–83 were unsuccessful as funds were fully committed, he proposes to increase the allocation to this sector of funding for population and family planning projects.

Resources available under the joint funding scheme are not allocated by sector. Population and family planning projects accepted for support under the scheme receive 100 per cent. grants whilst projects in other sectors are usually supported on a 50/50 basis. This reflects the importance attached to this area of work.
