§ Mrs. Hart
I have strongly pressed the Community to adopt a world-wide approach to aid based on need which would benefit primarily the populous and poor Asian developing countries. I will continue to press the case for this on the basis of specific proposals which the Commission has now put forward. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade will be similarly pressing for the fuller implementation of the Joint Declaration of Intent, whether by improvements to the Generalised Scheme of Preferences or by other means.
