Mr. Mason

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations to what extent he is satisfied with the present arrangements for granting aid to Southern Rhodesia; what further financial assistance is contemplated by Her Majesty's Government other than through the Commonwealth Develop- ment Corporation; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I have been asked to reply.

The present arrangements have enabled Her Majesty's Government to provide a significant measure of assistance to Southern Rhodesia. With regard to further assistance, I have nothing to add at present to the reply which I gave to my horn. Friend the Member for Haltemprice (Mr. Wall) on 2nd August.
