To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what funding he proposes to make available to United Kingdom non-governmental organisations in 1992–93 through the Overseas Development Administration's joint funding scheme.

I propose to increase the allocation to the joint funding scheme by £5 million to £28 million in 1992–93. This represents an increase of about 22 per cent. on the 1991–92 budget and demonstrates the Government's continuing commitment to, and confidence in, the contribution made by voluntary organisations to developing countries.
