Is this not a surprising answer, if the Prime Minister is serious about oil sanctions—[Laughter.] This is not a very cheerful subject. Is not the dangerous logic of this dangerous policy the extension of oil sanctions to South Africa and Portuguese territory? Will the Prime Minister resist any temptation to internationalise this conflict, contrary to British interests and those of world peace?
I am very glad that the hon. Gentleman is beginning to realise the dangers of this being internationalised. He does not appear to have realised it up to now. He will remember that when this was debated just before Christmas I made it plain that we had no intention or idea of trying to settle these matters by force. If he quarrels with the sanctions policy, he should remember that it has been supported throughout by the Leader and the Front Bench of his party.
