§ Mr. Tilney
asked the Minister for Overseas Development whether he has studied the effect of the incentives given by the West German Government to private enterprise for investment in developing 246W countries, details of which have been sent to him; and what plans he has for achieving similar mutual benefits for trade between the developed and developing countries.
§ Mr. Prentice
I am aware of the West German incentives to private investment in developing countries. There are differences, mainly of historical development, between British and West German aid programmes. The general question of incentives to private investment overseas is primarily a matter for my right hon. Friend, the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
