HC Deb 23 November 1983 vol 49 c215W
54. Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has had any recent discussions with the rugby union authorities concerning proposals for South African teams to visit the United Kingdom.

Mr. Macfarlane

No. I know of only one such proposal, for a tour of Wales by a youth team. My hon. Friend the Minister of State, Welsh Office, with responsibility for sporting matters in Wales, has strongly urged the Welsh rugby union and the Welsh youth rugby union to cancel this visit.
