§ 122. Sir Richard Glyn
asked the Minister of Overseas Development whether she will place in the Library a copy of the statement she recently made to the Development Assistance Committee of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development in Paris, in which she stated that the British Government would continue to supply 141W 1 per cent. of United Kingdom national income for overseas aid.
§ Mrs. Castle
No. The circulation of texts of statements made in the Development Assistance Committee of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development is restricted to participants, and I am therefore not at liberty to publish my statement. I must, however, make it clear that the target of 1 per cent. of national income for overseas aid which has been reached by the United Kingdom is the one calculated in accordance with the Recommendations of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development last year, and includes private investment as well as official aid.
