HC Deb 26 November 1958 vol 596 cc341-2
8. Mr. Philips Price

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to what extent, as a result of the visit of the Yugoslav Foreign Minister, it has been possible to arrange some economic assistance to that country.

Mr. Ormsby-Gore

I have nothing to add to the reply which my right hon. and learned Friend gave to the hon. Member for East Ham, South (Mr. Oram) on 19th November.

Mr. Philips Price

In view of the Soviet Union boycott, or virtual boycott, of Yugoslavia, is not it desirable that we should do something to assist that country as far as we can?

Mr. Ormsby-Gore

I would entirely agree, and as soon as there is any information which I can give to the House, I will certainly give it.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

Is not it a fact that loans to Yugoslavia have been both safe and advantageous investments, and will the Government do their best to see that Yugoslavia does get the help which it badly needs at the present time?

Mr. Ormsby-Gore

Yes, Sir.
