HC Deb 18 June 1975 vol 893 c460W
26. Dr. Bray

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs in view of the evidence sent to him by the hon. Member for Motherwell and Wishaw showing the torture, resettlement and eviction of Africans by the security forces in Rhodesia, if he will take action to deal with this situation.

Mr. Rowlands

We keep a close watch on the situation in Rhodesia. We deplore the violence which has been taking place and have frequently called on both sides to renounce violence and to come to a negotiated settlement. Detailed thinking on how to move towards such a settlement was contained in my right hon. Friend's statement to this House on 11th June.
