Her Majesty's Government have recently made a final contribution of £535,715 to the United Nations Korean Reconstruction Agency. This brings our total payment to £9,585,715. Her Majesty's Government have also provided supplies to the value of approximately £470,000 as a contribution in kind towards reconstruction in Korea. The United Nations Reconstruction Agency has performed an invaluable task in relieving suffering in Korea, and has been of real assistance to the Korean economy.
Has this reconstruction and rehabilitation been operating in the north of Korea as well as in the south? How many nations have been participating in this progressive service to the unhappy people of that country? Can the hon. Gentleman also say what proportion of the total amount spent our £9 million represents?
I think that if the hon. Gentleman would put down the first two parts of his supplementary question I could give him a full answer. As to the last part, the Government have contributed roughly 20 per cent. Out of a total contribution of 127 million dollars our contribution has been 25 million dollars.
