HC Deb 30 November 1979 vol 974 cc871-2W
Mr. Goodlad

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether Her Majesty's Government support the declaration made by the international conference of Parliamentarians on population and development held in Colombo in August-September 1979.

Mr. Hurd

A great deal of ground is covered by the declaration and it is being carefully studied. In general the Government welcome the declaration's reaffirmation of the importance of population policies in social and economic development programmes.
