HC Deb 11 November 1985 vol 86 c34W
78. Mr. Tom Cox

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he last met His Excellency, the ambassador of the Sudan; and if he will make a statement on the subjects discussed.

Mr. Raison

I last met the Sudanese ambassador on 24 October on the occasion of the visit to this country of the Prime Minister of Sudan. We had a wide-ranging review of Sudan's present economic problems, and discussed the consequences of last season's drought in Sudan and the emergency relief operation to which we had contributed.
