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

asked the Minister of Overseas Development whether he is satisfied with the progress of the work of the Population Bureau established in his Department and the use made of its services; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Oram

Yes. In the six months since the Director took up his appointment attention has been concentrated on the recruitment of staff, and on the initiation of teaching and research in conjunction with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The Director has attended several conferences and visited a number of countries in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean to establish more precisely how our help can best be made available.
