HC Deb 25 January 1971 vol 810 c11W
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.
