HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 cc360-1W
Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation what steps he is taking to compensate those officers on Special List "A" who, relying on the agreement which Her Majesty's Government negotiated with the Nigerian Government, now find themselves financially embarrassed due to the Nigerian Government's failure to implement that agreement and Her Majesty's Government's failure to persuade the Nigerian Government to implement this understanding.

Mr. R. Carr

I realise that the salaries of these officers have not been kept in line with rising costs and the Nigerian Governments have therefore been informed that the British Government will, on request, terminate the secondment to Nigeria of any Special List "A" officer dissatisfied with his conditions of employment. The officer will then revert to British Government service and become entitled to the other substantial benefits of Special List "A".
