To ask the Prime Minister pursuant to her reply about the African National Congress to the right hon. Member for Manchester, Gorton on 16 January, Official Report, column 160, whether the African National Congress has since that reply removed what she referred to as an ambiguity; and whether, in the light of developments since that reply, she continues to regard the African National Congress as a terrorist organisation.

We have welcomed the South African Government's decision to lift the bans on the African National Congress and other political organisations. We look to them to make a correspondingly positive response. As yet, the ANC has not committed itself unambiguously to the pursuit of a peaceful solution to South Africa's problems through negotiation. We continue to urge it to do so.
