HC Deb 27 April 1983 vol 41 c332W
48. Mr. John Carlisle

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will advise the Commonwealth Games Council as to whether its new code of practice as adopted in Brisbane in 1982 is in contravention of the Gleneagles agreement.

Mr. Macfarlane

No. Only Commonwealth Governments can contravene the Commonwealth statement on apartheid in sport. The Commonwealth games code of conduct has been adopted by the Commonwealth Games Federation and applies to individual national Commonwealth Games associations.
