§ Mr. Kershaw
It is for each member country of the United Nations to determine its own policy in the light of Security Council resolutions.
§ Mr. Warren
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what direct approaches have now been made by Her Majesty's Government to the Governments of other nations whose business firms are known to have been breaking the sanctions on the sale of goods to Rhodesia; and what have been the responses by these Governments.
§ Sir Alec Douglas-Home
Her Majesty's Government have no way of knowing whether the activities of business firms of other countries are in breach of sanctions. It is for the United Nations Sanctions Supervisory Committee, the Committee established in pursuance of Security Council Resolution 253, and the Government of the country concerned to investigate information about suspected violations which is brought to their attention, for example in the Notes which we submit about suspected violations.
