HL Deb 26 January 1987 vol 483 c1240WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether, in negotiations over the management of international debt, the desirability or otherwise of debtor governments pursuing policies which are likely to lead to drug crop production capability is taken into account.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Transport (Lord Brabazon of Tara)

The main considerations in debt negotiations are economic. But we shall continue to encourage and assist the efforts of producer countries to reduce the supply of illicit drugs.
