HC Deb 01 April 1969 vol 781 c59W
13. Mr. Archer

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what proposals he has for giving further relief to India from interest and capital repayments in respect of her loans from the United Kingdom; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Prentice

No decision has yet been taken. I hope and expect, however, that all the member countries of the Aid India Consortium will agree to the continuation this year of the multilateral debt relief scheme which was started in 1968–69. This amounts to £42 million per annum of which the United Kingdom share is £7.5 million.
