§ Mr. Judd
Will not the President of the Board of Trade agree that there is very welcome evidence that our trade with Africa, other than with the Republic of South Africa, is doing increasingly well? Will he not also agree that there are many opportunities, north of the Zambesi in particular, still to be exploited which are not yet being exploited by Britain but which are being exploited by our competitors? In view of this, would he not agree that it would be lunacy to jeopardise these opportunities by totally unnecessary policies towards the Republic of South Africa which can only be regarded as hostile by the rest of the continent?
§ Mr. Waddington
Will my right hon. Friend ensure that political considerations are not allowed to interfere with trade with any country?
