HC Deb 09 March 1961 vol 636 c65W
69. Mr. F. Noel-Baker

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations how many British officials from the United Kingdom are now serving on temporary secondment with the Cyprus Government; how many Cypriot officials are serving with the United Kingdom Government and Colonial Governments or undergoing training in the United Kingdom or Colonies; and what other technical co-operation is now taking place or is planned between the two countries.

Mr. Sandys

One official of the British Government is serving on secondment with the Cyprus Government. No official of the Cyprus Government is serving with the United Kingdom or any Colonial Government. Eight officials of the Cyprus Government are now training in the United Kingdom. No specific projects for technical co-operation have been agreed between the British and Cyprus Governments. But within the terms of the financial settlement between the two countries we should be ready to consider such projects.
