§ Mr. Fatchett
My right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer chaired the G7 Finance Ministers meeting last month at which the financial situation in South East Asia, notably Indonesia, was addressed. We have contact at official level with G7 partners on its political ramifications, and will discuss the issue fully in Birmingham.
I also recently visited Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore in order to discuss the current financial difficulties.
