HC Deb 20 July 1982 vol 28 c95W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what advice has been given to British corporations which have interests in Namibia, such as British Leyland, British Petroleum, British Nuclear Fuels and Rio Tinto Zinc, about the legality of their operations in the light of the impending independence of Namibia.

Mr. Onslow

Successive Governments have considered that British trade with, or investment in, Namibia does not conflict with any of our international obligations. We give no promotional support for such trade.
