§ 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.
