HC Deb 24 May 1966 vol 729 c60W
82. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what help he is giving to the development of co-operative societies and other village aid projects in Indonesia this year; and if there will be further help next year.

Mr. Oram

We have not received any request for help of this kind. Indeed, British technical assistance to Indonesia has been in suspense since 1963. But with an improvement in Anglo-Indonesian relations we should be ready to consider sympathetically any such request in the future, in the light of our overall commitments at the time.
