The right hon. Gentleman and the House will have noted the action taken yesterday by the United States Senate in relation to the Byrd amendment. Will the right hon. Gentleman say a kind word in favour of the United States administration? Does not the action that has now been taken in the United States in reversing its previous policy on imports of chrome re-emphasise the need not merely to continue with the policy of sanctions but, if possible, to intensify it?
Is it not a fact that those who are interned in Rhodesia are not seeking a settlement but are seeking to have armed revolution in that country and to exterminate the white population?
That must be a matter of judgment. As I have said, our belief is that Rhodesia will not be able to evolve to legal independence unless she can reach agreement between the various communities living there.
