NotesNews: Hurd yesterday laid the blame for the Pergau dam controversy squarely at the door
of Lord Younger of Prestwick who, as George Younger, was foremerly his Cabinet colleague.
The Foreign Secretary said that government policy was breached by Lord Younger when he was
Defence Secretary. He had made an "incorrect" decision by agreeing that Malaysia would buy
one billion pounds of defence equipment from Britain in return for investment of up to 200
million pounds in the Pergau dam project. Arthur Leathley in The Times.
