HC Deb 08 November 1966 vol 735 cc241-2W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs which Commonwealth and foreign Governments are represented in Rhodesia; and at what level.

Mrs. Hart

Britain has residual staff in the High Commission, having withdrawn its head of misison after i.d.i.; France, the United States, Japan and Italy withdrew the heads of their Consular missions after i.d.i. They together with the Netherlands, Portugal and Switzerland have career consular officers in Rhodesia. South Africa has an accredited diplomatic representative. In the case of Belgium and Germany their Consul-Generals had left Rhodesia before i.d.i. and have not been replaced. Other Commonwealth countries withdrew their entire missions and are not represented.
