HC Deb 12 November 1970 vol 806 cc592-3
Q1. Mr. Molloy

asked the Prime Minister what recent communications he has received from the Prime Minister of South Africa.

The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Reginald Maudling)

I have been asked to reply.

None, Sir.

Mr. Molloy

Then will the right hon. Gentleman ask his right hon. Friend to send a message to the Prime Minister of South Africa which will reveal that the Government do not propose to carry on with their policy of selling arms to South Africa, because this is a policy which has outraged a large section of British public opinion, which will make us partners in apartheid and which will contribute to the smashing of the multiracial British Commonwealth of Nations?

Mr. Maudling

When the Government have a statement to make on this, it will be made to the House of Commons.
