HC Deb 16 June 1980 vol 986 c350W
49. Mr. Tilley

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he will make a statement on Her Majesty's Government's policy towards, and assistance for, Jamaica.

52. Mr. Dubs

asked the Lord Privy Seal what discussions he has had with other donor countries about the need for assistance to Jamaica.

Mr. Neil Marten

We expect Jamaica's economic problems to be discussed when the Caribbean Group for Co-operation in Economic Development meets next week in Washington. We shall take due note of any conclusions reached there. In general, however, we consider that we should not be justified in providing a new aid loan to Jamaica in the absence of an economic programme which has international support.

Forward to
