§ 42. Mr. Hugh Jenkins
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether, in view of the fact that the contract between the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority and the Rio Tinto Corporation for the supply of uranium from South-West Africa is contrary to United Nations resolutions in the General Assembly and the Security Council, he will direct the Authority to terminate the contract.
§ Mr. Jenkins
Since the presence of South Africa in South-West Africa has been declared illegal by the United Nations, is not Government support of 28 this proposal evidence of the fact that their support of the United Nations and their supposed abhorrence of apartheid are equally bogus?
§ Sir Alec Douglas-Home
The hon. Gentleman should address the question to his own Front Bench, since this project was authorised by the previous Government.
