HC Deb 22 February 1978 vol 944 c648W
Mr. Lee

asked the Minister of Overseas Development if she will publish a further White Paper explaining the reasons for the additional £90 million assistance being provided to the Crown Agents; and if she will state in it any conditions she has laid down governing its use.

Mrs. Hart

No. No new factors in the circumstances of the Crown Agents have arisen, and, indeed, their financial position has strengthened. I gave the reasons for making this further recoverable grant in my answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, South and Finsbury (Mr. Cunningham) on 15th February. The same guidelines will apply to this grant as to the earlier grant.—[Vol. 944, c. 225–6.]
