Dr. Tonge

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what plans he has to use the forthcoming G8 sutnmit in Birmingham to highlight the problems of developing country debt. [27171]

Mr. Gordon Brown

For many of these countries, a key difficulty is unsustainable debt. I will also be discussing this with my Finance Minister colleagues in preparing for the Summit discussion between Heads of State and Government.
