To ask the Prime Minister what plans Her Majesty's Government have to contribute new proposals to the World Commission on Environment and Development when it reconvenes in London on 21 to 24 April.

I am delighted that the World commission will reconvene in London in April. The purpose of the meeting is to enable the commissioners to make their independent assessment of the prospects for the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development. The commissioners are not seeking proposals from Governments but, in view of the importance of the event, Her Majesty's Government are giving financial and other support to the organisers, the Centre for our Common Future.
