HC Deb 15 March 1983 vol 39 c113W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he has made any assessment of the extent to which British business activities in Namibia assist the financing of the regime in that country and the military operations in Namibia of the South African Government.

Mr. Rifkind

No. It is my understanding that the costs of the South African administration and military presence in Namibia are met from revenues collected within the territory, supplemented by considerable subventions from the South African Government.
