HC Deb 15 April 1965 vol 710 cc227-8W
33. Mr. Shepherd

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the average delay complained of by British suppliers who are finding difficulty in obtaining payment from the Ghanaian Government in respect of goods supplied under contract.

Mr. Redhead

The average delay on the last 100 invoices taken up with the Ghana Supply Commission is nearly eleven months. However, the Ghanaian Minister of Finance assured the British High Commissioner in Accra on 12th April that Exchange Control approval would shortly be given for all payments outstanding for goods supplied to the Ghana Supply Commission.
