HC Deb 07 December 1992 vol 215 c494W
Mr. Meacher

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many staff are employed in the United Kingdom's executive director's office at the African Development bank in Abidjan; and if he will give details of their duties.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The United Kingdom shares a constituency with Germany, the Netherlands and Portugal. The executive director is assisted by an alternate executive director—who is part time—an adviser and an assistant. The board of directors considers all lending proposals and a wide range of policy documents. Details of its work are set out in the bank's annual report, which is available in the Libraries of the House.
