§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if it is his practice to refer in official documents to the territory of South-West Africa as Namibia; and whether Her Majesty's Government do not now recognise South Africa "s legal right to administer this area.
§ Mr. Foley
It is not my practice to refer in official documents to the territory of South-West Africa as "Namibia". We consider that the South African Government have forfeited the right to administer the Mandate by their disavowal of obligations under it and, in particular, by their breach of the requirements of international accountability. We are, however, compelled to accept that the South African Government is inde facto control of the territory.
