HC Deb 19 December 1963 vol 686 c265W
83. Mr. Woodnutt

asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation if Her Majesty's Government will assume responsibility for the future payment of pensions to ex-Gold Coast civil servants.

Mr. Carr

No. The pensions of former Gold Coast civil servants continue to be met by the Ghana Government which is responsible for them. As I assured the House last Tuesday, I am deeply concrned that the interests of these pensioners should not be adversely affected by any special taxation introduced in Ghana. I cannot say more while our consultations with the Ghana Government are incomplete.
