HC Deb 26 June 1985 vol 81 c416W
Mr. Nellist

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what facilities were provided by Her Majesty's Government for the five hon. Members recently in Namibia; what were the total costs to public funds; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Rifkind

The five Members of Parliament visited Namibia at the invitation of the Namibia information service which we understand paid for their visit. On their return journey they were received and entertained to lunch by a member of the British embassy in Pretoria in accordance with the embassy's normal practice of keeping in touch with visiting British MPs.
