I have personal knowledge of substantial debts in countries such as Sierra Leone. Much of the issue relates to the question of the jurisdiction in which parties would bring proceedings. A number of debts in Africa have the potential to result in proceedings brought either in South Africa or in this country, so it is difficult to quantify. However, I reassure my hon. Friend that there are substantially more debts simply than those that have been identified in Liberia.
