To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what help Her Majesty's Government are currently giving to political organisations in South Africa.
I refer the right hon. Gentleman to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Sheffield, Central (Mr. Caborn) on 13 June 1990, at column 255. In this financial year we have committed over £40,000 under this scheme.
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will make a statement on Her Majesty's Government's policy towards the furtherance of diplomatic relations with South Africa.
We have consistently maintained regular contact with the South African authorities on a wide range of issues, both here and via Her Majesty's ambassador. We have opposed the diplomatic isolation of South Africa and welcome the increasing number of countries which share our view.
