§ Mr. Pendry
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will press for the new select committee of the International Cricket Conference to introduce a test ban for players with sporting links with South Africa, in line with the principles of the Gleneagles agreement.
§ Mr. Moynihan
The possible introduction of a test ban for players with sporting links with South Africa is a matter for the Test and County Cricket Board and the International Cricket Conference. Both bodies are aware that the Government arc fully committed to the Gleneagles agreement and take all practical steps to discourage sporting links with South Africa.
