HC Deb 16 November 1970 vol 806 cc299-300W
49. Mr. Robert Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will seek to institute an inquiry through the United Nations Organisation into the origin of the shipment of ammonia to Rhodesia which evaded the Beira blockade.

Sir Alec Douglas-Home

No. There has been no shipment of ammonia for Rhodesia which evaded the Beira blockade since the sole concern of the Beira Patrol is to prevent oil shipments for Rhodesia from reaching the port of Beira.
