§ Mr. Robert Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will investigate, and make a statement on, the extent to which British exports to South Africa are being impeded by delays to shipping.
§ Mr. Clinton Davis
I am aware that the delivery of our exports to South Africa is being delayed, but this is a result of congestion at South African ports. I understand that both the South African Government and the commercial interests involved are doing their utmost to improve the situation.
