HC Deb 10 July 1967 vol 750 c25W
91. Mr. Tilney

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what action he is taking to see that the members of Her Majesty's Overseas Civil Service employed by, or until recently employed by the Government of the Eastern Region of Nigeria, receive their salaries at present frozen in Eastern Nigeria by orders of the Federal Government.

Mr. Oram

The salaries are still being paid in Eastern Nigeria but money cannot be transferred here. We are however continuing our supplementary payments in this country and my right hon. Friend is considering the possibility of other help.
