HC Deb 24 April 1972 vol 835 cc175-6W
11. Mr. Prentice

asked the Secretary of state for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will keep open the possibility of a visit by himself, or by the Minister for Overseas Development, to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, if it appears likely that such a visit will facilitate agreement on some of the major issues at the conference.

Mr. Kershaw

My right hon. Friend the Minister for Trade attended the opening days of the Conference, and my noble Friend the Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office will go there from 3rd to 10 May. These visits ensure that the views and influence of Her Majesty's Government are adequately expressed and exerted.
