HC Deb 03 March 1982 vol 19 c180W
18. Mr. Brocklebank-Fowler

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he has pursued any initiatives within the United Nations to accelerate progress on the global negotiations following the Cancun summit.

Mr. Hurd

As holder of the presidency of the European Community, we took the lead at last year's General Assembly in the search for an agreed basis upon which to launch global negotiations. Difficulties persist, but we are doing what we can to help resolve them.
