§ 91. Mrs. Shirley Williams
asked the Minister of Overseas Development what financial assistance is available under the technical assistance programmes to British expatriate officers in the Nigerian public services.
§ Mr. Oram
I have recently agreed with the Nigerian authorities to supplement salaries of British expatriate officers in the Nigerian public services. The scheme will cost about £600,000 a year 213W and will affect some 1,200 officers. Provision for payments falling due in the current financial year has been included in the spring Supplementary Estimates.
