asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has made to the USA about their continuing import of chrome from Rhodesia, in view of the illegality of the régime.

My right hon. Friend has discussed this matter with the United States Administration who favour repeal of the legislation under which Rhodesian chrome may be imported into the United States. A Bill to effect repeal did not come to a vote in the House of Representatives in December, but I understand that it has been reintroduced during the present session.
