HC Deb 18 July 1968 vol 768 c268W
53. Mr. Goodhart

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs whether he is prepared to increase the amount of aid sent to Nigeria following the report of Lord Hunt on his mission to Nigeria.

Mr. George Thomson

As the House knows, we recently provided £250,000 for emergency relief in Nigeria, including the Ibo areas. Lord Hunt is expected to return from Nigeria at the weekend to complete his recommendations as to the most effective use that can be made of the money. I will inform the House as soon as I have seen Lord Hunt and studied his full report.
