HC Deb 25 January 1972 vol 829 c410W
52. Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether, in view of the resolution of the Rhodesian churches and African political parties and the decision of the United Nations Organisation, he will disband the Pearce Commission and recommence negotiations with Rhodesia based on the principle of no independence before majority rule.

Mr. Woodhouse

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list those countries, whether or not members of the United Nations, whose nationals have infringed the United Nations resolution imposing mandatory sanctions against Rhodesia; and indicate in which cases the responsible Governments have taken action against the offenders.

Sir Alec Douglas-Home

In cases where Her Majesty's Government have good reason to suspect that there has been a breach of sanctions by a national of another country the normal procedure is for this to be reported to the committee set up in pursuance of Security Council resolution 253, 1968, which then makes appropriate investigations. The outcome of cases investigated including the action taken by Governments concerned is recorded in the annual reports of that committee, copies of which are available in the House of Commons Library.
