HC Deb 18 February 1976 vol 905 c739W
43. Mrs. Wise

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is his policy relating to increased EEC assistance—by means of loans or in any other way—to Portugal, in the light of the comparatively low amount of loan agreed in December.

Mr. James Callaghan

The type of protocol, its duration and details will be determined in negotiations between the Community and Portugal.
