I should like to raise a point that might help the right hon. Gentleman for a moment or two—and it does not really matter for this purpose what I say.

The right hon. Gentleman has just mentioned Rhodesia. Is he himself taking any new initiative to prevent the development of what appears to be a very ugly scene indeed, or is he relying solely on the initiative being taken by the United States Secretary of State? Does he recognise that first and foremost this is a British responsibility? Will he give some information about what action he has taken?
