§ 53. Mr. Weetch
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether there has been a review of British policy towards South Africa's new constitution since the statement made as an explanation of vote on United Nations Security Council resolution 554.
§ Mr. Rifkind
We continue to regard the new constitution as seriously flawed by the absence of any provision for South Africa's black population. We have been encouraged by President Botha's speech of 25 January and hope that the ideas it outlines will be followed by major reforms affecting South Africa's black majority.
