HC Deb 31 July 1963 vol 682 cc91-2W
99. Mr. Brockway

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will make a statement on the policy of Her Majesty's Government towards the continued participation of the Republic of South Africa and Portugal in the deliberations of the United Nations and its agencies, in view of the decisions made at the International Labour Office conference and the International Conference on Education called by the United Nations Education and Social Council.

Mr. Heath

Her Majesty's Government remain opposed to the expulsion of South Africa and Portugal from the United Nations or any of the specialised agencies. They do not believe that the international isolation of either of these countries can serve any useful purpose.
