HC Deb 30 July 1980 vol 989 c724W
Mr. Parris

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he will agree to meet representatives of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic to discuss, without prejudice, the implications of the Organisation of African Unity's move towards recognition of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic.

Sir Ian Gilmour

No. To do as my hon. Friend suggests would prejudice the Government's impartiality on this issue. We believe this is a matter for the parties concerned to resolve. It remains the subject of consideration by the Organisation of African Unity.
