HC Deb 13 February 1967 vol 741 c16W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what British subjects are among the mining technicians in Katanga forbidden by the Government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo to leave the country; and what action has been taken.

Mr. George Thomson

Three British subjects were employed by Union Miniére at the beginning of the year. One of these left last week with his family without hindrance. Her Majesty's Ambassador at Kinshasa has received from the Congolese Government an assurance that British subjects in the Congo will be allowed to leave if they so wish.
