Written statement to Parliament

Westminster Foundation for Democracy Framework Agreement

This speech was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Foreign Secretary William Hague has updated Parliament on the Framework Agreement between the Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD) and the FCO.

I would like to inform the House that the Framework Agreement between the Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD) and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has been updated, in line with Cabinet Office and HM Treasury guidelines for Non-Departmental Public Bodies (NDPBs).

The Framework Agreement combines a management statement, which sets out the basis for the FCO’s relationship with WFD, and a financial memorandum, which sets out in greater detail the financial framework within which the WFD is required to operate.

I have placed copies of the Agreement in the Libraries of both Houses. The Agreement is also available on the Westminster Foundation for Democracy website.
