HC Deb 21 May 1981 vol 5 cc136-7W
Q22. Sir David Price

asked the Prime Minister whether, in her consideration of the Government's proposals to be made at the October meeting in Mexico on the Brandt report, she will give particular attention to the role of intermediate technology.

The Prime Minister

The Government recognise the importance for developing countries of the acquisition of technology appropriate to their circumstances. Within our aid programme, we provide assistance for the development of such technology. It is too early to speak about possible proposals for the Mexico summit; the agenda will not be decided in advance of a meeting of Foreign Ministers in early August.
