HC Deb 09 June 1976 vol 912 cc686-7W
Mr. Michael Latham

asked the Minister for Overseas Development how the United Kingdom delegate to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations voted on the Resolution passed at the sixtieth session, 1,999th meeting, on 11th May regarding aid to Mozambique; and whether the United Kingdom delegate expressed any views, other than those summarised at the bottom of page four of the Press notice of that meeting, regarding that section of the Resolution which called for the assistance to be whenever possible in the form of grants.

Mr. Prentice

The United Kingdom delegate was instructed to vote in favour of the Resolution, which was adopted by consensus. The delegate stated that our initial aid would be a loan on soft terms.
