HC Deb 28 January 1991 vol 184 c386W
Mr. Bowis

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what support he is currently giving to new and expanding businesses and other job-creation schemes in Namibia.

Mrs. Chalker

At the request of the Namibian Government, we have focused our assistance initially on education and police training. We are now exploring with the Government of Namibia the scope for assistance to other sectors and, in doing so, will take careful account of the possibilities for employment creation. I shall discuss our aid to Namibia with members of her Government during my two-day visit this week, and on my return report to the House if progress has been made.
