HC Deb 03 March 1983 vol 38 c214W
Mr. Luce

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he has any proposals to assist British commercial interests in securing a full proportion of contracts under the successor to the Lomé agreement.

Mr. Peter Rees

I have been asked to reply.

The formal negotiatons on the convention have not yet begun. We are, however, already in discussion with the Commission to ensure that the convention, when signed, is implemented in such a way as to secure a full proportion of contracts under it for United Kingdom commercial interests.
