10. Mr. Mime
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on talks held with sugar-producing Commonwealth countries arising from the talks on sugar prices and other related matters with a view to the attraction of new forms of development aid.
§ Mr. John Davies
The communiqué issued at the end of the conference was published in the OFFICIAL REPORT on 30th March. I should add that in no recent discussions of either the short-term or the longer-term prospects for Commonwealth sugar has the need emerged to consider new forms of development aid for developing Commonwealth sugar-producing countries.—[Vol. 853, c. 413–14.]
