§ Mr. Denzil Davies
asked the Lord Privy Seal if he proposes to set up a fund to compensate landowners in Zimbabwe-Rhodesia; what would be its purpose; and what would be the estimated cost to public funds of the British contribution.
§ Mr. Neil Marten
No. If the future Government of a legally independent Zimbabwe should establish an institution to plan, finance and implement an agricultural settlement and development programme which might include the purchase of land, we would be prepared to contribute to the programme from within the overseas aid budget.
