HC Deb 08 May 1970 vol 801 cc197-8W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he is aware that there are many persons in Southern Rhodesia supporting the illegal Smith régime, some holding so-called official positions of state, who are holding titles; and whether he will take whatever steps may be necessary to remove these titles from these persons.

Mr. Foley:

I am aware that there are a number of persons holding titles who serve the illegal régime in Southern Rhodesia in various capacities. The question whether these titles should be removed is complicated and will require considerable study.
