[Mr. Greg Pope in the Chair] — India Country Assistance Plan (28 Jun 2007)

Gareth Thomas: ...for that side of the partnership. He is also right to highlight the fact that India's stability is a force for good in the region. I say gently to my hon.

[Mr. Greg Pope in the Chair] — India Country Assistance Plan (28 Jun 2007)

Latin America (2 May 2006)

Gareth Thomas: ...him in paying tribute to it and to several other NGOs that DFID funds in the region and I hope that there will be more shortly. My hon.
