§ Mr. Newens
asked the Lord Privy Seal if it is in accord with British international obligations under the 1976 United Nations embargo on military contacts with South Africa for a British company, based at Hum airport, to recruit technicians for the maintenance of South African Air Force aeroplanes at Dunnotar; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Luce
We have no knowledge of the alleged activities to which the hon. Member refers. As he describes them, they do not contravene the 1977 United Nations mandatory arms embargo against South Africa or the Government's policy of non-collaboration with the South African Government in defence matters.
