§ Mr. Michael Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he last met with leaders of the Democratic Turnhalle party of Namibia, the Kavango Alliance party, Rehoboth Baster Veriging, South West Africa Peoples' Organisation, SWANU, South West Africa Peoples' Organisation-D, The Labour party of Namibia, and the Rehoboth Free Democratic party; and whether he has any plans to meet the leaders of these Namibian political parties in the future.
§ Mr. Rifkind
My right hon. and learned Friend met the leader of the South West Africa People's Organisation on 26 June. Her Majesty's Government are willing to have contact with all the parties to the United Nations plan for Namibia. Whilst he has not met the leaders of the other named political parties, we do keep in touch informally with all shades of political opinion in Namibia. My right hon. and learned Friend has no plans to meet the leaders of any Namibian political parties in the near future.
