HC Deb 18 February 1964 vol 689 cc168-9W
21. Mr. Burden

asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation how many former colonial service officers are affected by the withholding of tax imposed by the Government of Ghana; what further steps are being taken with the Government of Ghana to get the tax removed; and what are the intentions of Her Majesty's Government towards these pensioners.

Mr. Carr

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave on this subject on 11th February. The number of pensioners affected by the Ghana tax measure is approximately 1,500.
