Is the Prime Minister aware that statements concerning the alleged exchanges have been repeatedly attributed to official spokesmen of the Zambia Government? If these allegations are without foundation, is it not unfortunate that they have not been repudiated until this moment?
If the exchanges to which the hon. Gentleman refers are supposed to be exchanges between the Zambia Government and Her Majesty's Government, I have just given my answer. There have, of course, been exchanges between the Zambia Government and some of the representatives of the O.A.U. countries. This took place from 6th to 11th February, but we have had no exchanges about it.
