§ Mr. Judd
Will the hon. Gentleman give an assurance that there is no intention of increasing the degree of cooperation with the South African Navy? Will he agree that, if there were any tendency in that direction, it would be unfortunate at a time when there is growing confrontation in the African continent since it might appear that we were aligning ourselves militarily with the forces of oppression in Southern Africa?
§ Mr. Wall
Does not the present restriction in oil supplies underline the vital importance of the Cape route? Can my hon. Friend say when my right hon. hon. Friend the Prime Minister will carry out the promise he made when in Opposition to supply adequate arms for the maritime defence of the Cape route?
§ Mr. Frank Allaun
Does not the hon. Gentleman recognise the undesirable features of the supply of helicopters to South Africa? Will not this antagonise the whole African continent, including Nigeria?
