To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what progress has been made in alleviating the plight of Romanian orphans.

Since the Romanian revolution we have given over £6 million of medical and food aid to Romania (though not specifically to the orphanages) directly or through the EC.Charitable organisations in the UK have sent food, clothes and medical aid to the orphanages. British doctors and nurses are helping, and arrangements are being made for two Romanians to receive training in the UK. We have made small cash grants to help with this, and also to other organisations in the same field.We are now considering what more we can do.
