Venezuela

Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 10 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent representations the UK Government has made to the government of Venezuela on the Bolivarian missions in that country. (113204)

We have not made any representations to the Government of Venezuela on this domestic issue. We welcome the emphasis the Venezuelan government is putting on tackling poverty and the improvements the missions have brought in Venezuela’s healthcare and education provision. We do, however, have some concerns about the longer-term sustainability of the missions.
