asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list the Departments which have provided funds to support the work of the secretariats for the United Nations International Years of the Child 1979, Disabled People 1981 and Youth 1985; and if he will indicate in each case the amount of money involved.
The Overseas Development Administration made a voluntary contribution of £150,000 to the secretariat for the international year of the child. It also made £90,000 available for two special projects overseas. Of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's assessed contributions to the United Nations regular budget about £41,000 can be attributed to the secretariat for the international year of the disabled person. So far about £38,450 of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's contributions to the regular budget can be attributed to the secretariat for the international youth year.
