HC Deb 02 July 1979 vol 969 cc424-5W
23. Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will make a statement on trade with South Africa.

Mr. Nott

As my hon. Friend the Minister of State, Department of Trade made clear in the Whitsun Adjournment debate on 25 May, in general our policy is that civil trade with other countries should be determined by commercial considerations and not by the character of the Governments of those countries.
