HC Deb 09 March 1966 vol 725 cc560-1W
Mr. Wall

asked the Prime Minister if he will make a statement on the progress made with regard to sanctions against Rhodesia.

The Prime Minister

The measures which we, together with a number of other countries have taken to deny the illegal régime access to export markets and to ban exports to them are having a serious effect on Rhodesia's economy and have already led the régime to impose strict import licensing, fuel rationing, increased taxation and limitation of credit. Their effects can be expected to become rapidly more severe as the illegal régime's stocks and reserves are reduced.
