I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for that answer. Is he satisfied with the role of that United Nations agency in tackling the famine in Ethiopia? Will he sympathetically consider representations that may be made to the effect that that office should have its role and resources extended, and increased if necessary, to deal with other major catastrophes that may take place in future?
UNDRO is a monitoring, advisory and co-ordinating body with a small organisation, which is not designed to run a major famine relief operation. It is important to have effective co-ordination in places such as Ethiopia, and for that reason we support the action of the United Nations Secretary-General in appointing a special co-ordinator in the form of Mr. Jansson to operate from Addis.
