The form of consultation at the moment is that there is the Commonwealth Liaison Committee here in London. As my hon. Friend will appreciate, certain outline suggestions were put to the Commonwealth Prime Ministers by our Prime Minister, and the Commonwealth Governments are now considering these and they may wish to put forward suggestions of their own. We will get on with this as quickly as we can, and nothing would give me greater pleasure than to be able to make an announcement at the end of the year.
Are these development projects envisaged on a bilateral basis, or is the concept one of trying to develop Commonwealth action and Commonwealth teams to meet the specific needs of each country?
The difficult answer is that it is a mixture of both. We believe that one country could take the lead in management, but we also hope that personnel and financial contributions will be on a multi-country basis; in other words, a genuine Commonwealth basis.
