§ Viscount Exmouth
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether, during their Presidency of the European Union, they will promote a suspension of Community aid to Zambia, until such time as the Zambian Government reverse the amendment to the constitution, adopted in 1996, which limits the number of aspiring presidential candidates.
§ Lord Whitty
We will be discussing with the Government of Zambia whether we are able to establish a partnership with them on the basis outlined in the White Paper on International Development as a foundation for future aid commitments. We will continue to consult with our EU partners on this basis.
