82 ংলাদেশের স্বাধীনতা যুদ্ধ দলিলপত্রঃ ত্রয়োদশ খন্ড information about their relatives. At present, information is extremely difficult to get, by anyone. 31. Mr. Judd asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what proposals he has submitted to the Pakistan Aid Consortium for a reassessment of the aid programme to Pakistan following the outbreak of civil war in East Pakistan. The Minister for Overseas Development (Mr. Richard Wood): I am not yet in a position to make proposals. Our decisions must await the outcome of consultations now taking place within the framework of the consortium. Mr. Judd: While thanking the Right Hon. Gentleman for that reply, may I ask him if he would be prepared to take the initiative in calling for a review by the consortium to ensure that the international aid programmes to Pakistan are not underwriting the suppression of the people of East Pakistan? Mr. Wood: I am very anxious that the consortium should reach an agreed view about this, and that is why I am very carefully considering the position we should take before the next meeting of the consortium. Mr. Tilney: Would not my Right Hon. Friend bear in mind the urgent need which has lasted for many years now to build up funds against flood and storm? Mr. Wood: I am taking note of that. Mrs. Hart: Will the Right Hon. Gentleman confirm that the pledging meeting of the aid consortium is scheduled for June 2 In the debate we had in the House last Friday many views were expressed on this question. Will the Right Hon. Gentleman undertake to keep the House fully informed about the progress of negotiations, not only about our offer but the general negotiations of the consortium? Mr. Wood: I think I can give the Right Hon. Lady entire satisfaction on both points.
