§ Mr. Faulds
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs 15W if he will seek discussions with other European Governments to launch an economic assistance programme for the Portuguese Government.
§ Mr. Hattersley
We have received no such request from the Portuguese Government, but if they approached us we would naturally see if there were any ways in which we might be able to help them. The Portuguese Government have themselves announced a number of measures to deal with their immediate economic situation.
