asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action he intends to take to prevent any further supply of military materials by ICI to the Republic of South Africa, as detailed in a report presented by Christian Concern for Southern Africa to Sir Rowland Wright, Chairman of ICI.
