HC Deb 12 March 1970 vol 797 c357W
40. Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if Her Majesty's Government will arrange for a public observance of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, Sharpeville Day, on 21st March.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

While sympathising with the purposes of this occasion, the observance of international days of this kind is best left to non-governmental organisations.
