HC Deb 31 July 1974 vol 878 cc385-6W
Mr. Pink

asked the Minister of Overseas Development whether she will make a statement on the New York meeting to discuss help for countries worst hit by the oil situation, and whether she will make a statement on the European Communities' part in providing such help.

Mrs. Hart

I would refer the hon. Member to my written reply of 17th July and my oral reply of 22nd July to my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Mr. Hooley). I may add that, at the meeting of potential donors in New York on 15th July the United Kingdom representative made a plea for speedy action from the whole international community and emphasised the urgent need for the United Nations to publish a list of countries which it is considered should qualify for emergency aid.
