  • Description

    THE BRITISH CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER, MR. JAMES CALLAGHAN, IS IN WEST GERMANY FOR MORE TALKS ON THE COST OF KEEPING BRITISH FORCES THERE.

    MR. CALLAGHAN ARRIVED AT COLOGNE AIRPORT TODAY (THURSDAY), WHERE HE WAS MET BY BRITISH DIPLOMATS IN WEST GERMANY. THEN HE DROVE TO PETERSBERG FOR HIS MEETING WITH THE WEST GERMAN FINANCE MINISTER, HERR ROLF DAHLGRUEN, AND THE DEFENCE MINISTER, HERR VON HASSEL, IN THE PETERSBERG HOTEL OVERLOOKING THE RHINE.

    BRITAIN WANTS TO RECOVER THE FULL FOREIGN EXCHANGE COSTS OF KEEPING FORCES IN WEST GERMANY, AN OPERATION THAT'S COSTING ABOUT GBP94 MILLION A YEAR. BUT THE BONN GOVERNMENT, ITSELF DEALING WITH ECONOMIC PROBLEMS, HAS SO FAR OFFERED A CONTRIBUTION OF NO MORE THAN ABOUT GBP30 MILLION.

    MR. CALLAGHAN'S VISIT HAS BEEN OVERSHADOWED BY THE ANNOUNCEMENT YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) THAT BRITAIN, WEST GERMANY AND THE UNITED STATES WILL START A CONFERENCE IN BONN NEXT WEEK ON THE DEFENCE OF WESTERN EUROPE....AND HOW TO PAY FOR IT.
