§ 51. Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what part the British representative played at the last meeting of the South Pacific Commission; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kershaw
The United Kingdom Commissioner played a full part in the meeting, which was mainly concerned with the adoption of a work programme and budget. Her Majesty's Government will make a contribution to the Commission's 1971 budget of £76,000, an 8 per cent. increase on our 1970 contribution.
