HC Deb 20 May 1981 vol 5 c96W
20. Mr. John Carlisle

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will raise at the United Nations the blacklisting of sportsmen and the policy of the United Nations towards the activities of the South African Non-Racial Olympic Committee in this connection.

Mr. Blaker

The United. Kingdom is not a member of the United Nations Special Committee Against Apartheid, but the committee can be in no doubt about our views. Although we remain committed to the principle of non-discrimination in sport, we cannot condone measures such as the blacklisting of sportsmen as advocated by the South African Non-Racial Olympic Committee, which do not contribute to the solution of a sensitive problem.
