To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assistance the United Kingdom is giving to help Bulgaria implement its democratic reforms; and if he will make a statement.

We have made no firm commitment yet of bilateral help to Bulgaria. The elections of 10 and 17 June mark a considerable step towards democracy. But, in view of residual doubts about some aspects of those elections, we shall still need to assess the policies of the new Government, and their commitment to political and economic reform, before we can extend aid.
