§ Sir C. Osborne
asked the Minister of Overseas Development when he proposes to meet Mr. Eugene Rostow, Under-Secretary of State for Political Affairs in the United States Government, who is in this country on an official visit in order to propose that Great Britain should provide more money to buy fertilisers and food for India in the immediate future in order to prevent famine in India; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Bottomley
I am expecting to meet Mr. Rostow tomorrow to discuss a number of problems, in particular the Indian food situation. As these discussions will be confidential, it would not be appropriate or desirable for me to say more.
