HC Deb 25 June 1982 vol 26 cc200-1W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Prime Minister if, at the recent economic summit meeting in Versailles, the matter of an appropriate resolution to launch the United Nations global negotiations was discussed; and what amendments were agreed by Heads of State and Governments to such a resolution.

The Prime Minister

Yes. My colleagues and I approved four short amendments to the latest draft resolution circulated by the G77 which, as the declaration makes clear, we considered helpful. The general effect of these amendments is to afford even greater protection to the specialised bodies concerned. The revised text is now under discussion in New York.
