HC Deb 12 March 1981 vol 1000 c403W
Mr. Denis Howell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment on what date the Government received from the United Nations committee upon apartheid a list of sportsmen and women who have participated in South African sports; what conclusions the Government have reached about this communication; how the Government intend to proceed with this matter; and what consultations they have held on this subject with the appropriate sports organisations.

Mr. Monro

Despite inquiries at the United Nations in New York and elsewhere, the Government have not received a list of sportsmen and women who have taken part in sport in South Africa from either the Special Committee against Apartheid or any other United Nations body. I have seen a copy of an unofficial list of a similar nature, which I understand was drawn up by the South African Non-Racial Olympic Committee.
