HC Deb 13 March 1973 vol 852 c341W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs why, in licensing advertisements on humanitarian grounds for medical staff for Rhodesia, it is stipulated that such staff should be employed in institutions or on services for Africans; and whether he has consulted the Race Relations Board in the matter.

Mr. Kershaw

It is not the case that licences to advertise for such staff can be granted only for employment in institutions or on services for Africans. As my right hon. Friend the Minister of State told my hon. Friend on 11th December, each application for a licence is considered on its merits, humanitarian considerations being taken into account. There was no need to consult the Race Relations Board.—fVol 848, c.4.]
