HC Deb 12 March 1981 vol 1000 cc398-9W
Mr. Denis Howell

asked the Lord Privy Seal who represents Her Majesty's Government in the work of the United Nations committee involved with the question of sport with South Africa; and what decisions have been taken upon this subject affecting British sport.

Mr. Blaker

The United Kingdom is not represented on the special committee against apartheid or the ad hoc committee on the drafting of an international convention against apartheid in sports, which are the two United Nations, bodies dealing with the question of sporting links with South Africa. Decisions by these two bodies are not binding on the British Government.
