HC Deb 10 November 1966 vol 735 cc351-2W
89. Sir F. Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies to what extent the principle of self-determination of peoples, enshrined in the United Nations Charter, as to their future in the process of the decolonisation of the United Kingdom's remaining overseas dependencies still has application in the formulation of Her Majesty's Government's policies; and what exceptions are provided for.

Mr. Frederick Lee

Her Majesty's Government's policy is in accordance with the United Nations Charter. It takes full cognisance of the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, as of other relevant principles and obligations.
