HC Deb 05 November 1956 vol 558 c200W
52. Mr. Tilney

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what steps are being taken with France and other metropolitan European Powers to co-ordinate economic development in Africa.

Mr. Dodds-Parker

The importance of co-operation with other Powers in this field is fully recognised by Her Majesty's Government. Arrangements exist for consultation and co-operation with France and other interested countries on economic questions in Africa, through a variety of channels including direct consultations, co-operation in the Organisation for European Economic Cooperation and co-operation on technical matters in the Commission for Technical Co-operation in Africa South of the Sahara.
