§ Mr. Molloy
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will now consider opening discussions with the Government of Sierra Leone, with particular relation to the reassessment of the Guma Valley Dam project financial aid aspect and the future of the Kissy Jetty; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Ennals
We have already had discussions with the Sierra Leone Government about the Kissy Jetty and, as I informed the hon. Member for Derby, North (Mr. Whitehead) on 23rd January, agreement has been reached that a survey of the jetty should be undertaken. This survey will begin on 8th March.
As regards the Guma Valley water project it would be more appropriate for discussions to take place with the Commonwealth 132W Development Corporation, which put up most of the finance.
