§ Mr. Maclean
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assistance he is giving the South African Government to combat Islamic terrorism. 
§ Mr. Tony Lloyd
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office assists a number of countries each year to combat terrorism more effectively. A team of Whitehall officials will visit South Africa next month as a part of this programme for exploratory talks on counter-terrorism issues. This will be the first such contact with the South African Government since President Mandela's election.
