asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what progress has been made in discussions within the Council of Ministers on the European Community's economic policies towards South Africa; and if he will make a statement.

The Nine Foreign Ministers have discussed possible economic measures in respect of South Africa. No decisions have yet been taken, but study is continuing. Steps will be taken to implement the code of conduct on employment practices for companies of the Nine operating in South Africa.
