§ Mr. Sorensen
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any approach has been made to the United States of America to purchase the surplus sugar in Fiji.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
As I said in replying to my hon. Friend the Member for Bournemouth, West (Mr. Eden) on 12th July, full information was recently provided to the United States Authorities on behalf of all the Commonwealth countries concerned as to the amounts of sugar which could be made available if required. This included information about Fijian sugar.
