§ Lord Brockway
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What response has been given to the request by the Delhi Conference representing 44 developing countries that new efforts be made to launch global negotiations between developing and industrialised nations in view of the failure of the Cancun Conference to make arrangements for such negotiations.
§ Lord Carrington
We endorse the call by the participants at the New Delhi Conference for renewed efforts to start global negotiations. Since the Cancun Summit, which provided the initial impetus to resume preparations, we and our Community partners have been seeking to persuade all concerned to launch global negotiations on mutually agreed terms. We shall continue to do so.
