HL Deb 09 January 1992 vol 533 c90WA
Lord Wade of Chorlton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What are our relations with Tunisia.

Lord Cavendish of Furness

They remain good. The Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs made a successful visit to Tunisia on 2nd-3rd December. On 17th December British Gas signed a 600 million dollar contract to develop an offshore gas field. This is the largest ever British investment in Tunisia. It marks a breakthrough for the British private sector and will, we hope, generate further export opportunities.
