HC Deb 29 April 1976 vol 910 c135W
Mr. Tim Renton

asked the Prime Minister what plans he has to meet with the Heads of the OPEC States.

The Prime Minister

I have no immediate plans for meetings with the Heads of the OPEC States or their Heads of Government. However, invitations have been accepted from Iran, from Saudi Arabia and from Venezuela for me to visit those countries. I have visited both Iran and Saudi Arabia recently, but I look forward to taking all these invitations up in due course. President Perez of Venezuela has also accepted an invitation to visit the United Kingdom. Though I have no present plans for other meetings, I value highly the prospect of continuing exchanges of view with OPEC Governments at ministerial level.
