HC Deb 20 March 1970 vol 798 cc241-2W
Mr. Arthur Davidson

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what discussions she has had with Ministers in aid-donor countries in Europe about the Pearson and Jackson Reports.

Mrs. Hart

The Development Assistance Committee in Paris last November and the conference which I attended last month in Canada and the United States

yearly expenditure compare with increases in wages and prices.

Mr. William Rodgers

have provided excellent opportunities, both formal and informal, to discuss aspects of the reports with Ministers from other countries.
