HC Deb 29 June 1967 vol 749 cc730-1
26. Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what request he has received from Fiji for the support of its tourist industry; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Bottomley

None, Sir. I would be willing to consider a request if it were made.

Mr. Irvine

In view of the great experience of the Minister's Department in these matters, is it not time for him to have a look at the Report on the travel and tourist industry in Fiji, published as long ago as September 1965?

Mr. Bottomley

We have seen that Report, and I repeat that if we got a request we should consider the proposition.
