HC Deb 25 January 1971 vol 810 cc13-4W
70. Mr. James Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement regarding the progress of the Paris talks with the Ghana Minister of Finance regarding Ghanaian debt payments for 1971–72.

Mr. Kershaw

I am not aware of any talks in Paris about Ghana debt pay- ments for 1971–72. Perhaps the hon. Member has in mind the meeting of the Ghana Consultative Group which was held in Paris last December under the auspices of the World Bank and was concerned solely with Ghana's development aid requirements.
