HC Deb 09 November 1982 vol 31 c136W
Sir Anthony Meyer

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what general guidelines Her Majesty's Government are intending to pursue in the Community in the negotiations over the successor to the second Lomé convention.

Mr. Onslow

Her Majesty's Government will be guided in these negotiations by the importance they attach to relations with the ACP States, especially the Commonwealth ACP, and, in the light of prevailing economic circumstances, by the need to make the best use of the resources which the Community can provide in the framework of the successor to the second Lorné convention.
