To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the further implementation of the agreement on rain forests negotiated by the right hon. Member for Bath (Mr. Patten) with the Brazilian Government.

Detailed proposals are now being prepared by the Brazilian authorities for our consideration. I wrote to the hon.
