  • Description

    While Britain's Prime Minister Edward Heath took time off on Sunday (17 Jan) to sail around Singapore's islands, President Milton Obote of Uganda gave a press conference in which he warned of the possible consequences to Britain of going ahead with the proposed sale of maritime arms to South Africa.

    The issue is expected to be the subject of a major debate tomorrow (Tuesday) among Commonwealth leaders at the conference. Dr. Obote gave a preview of his own attitude to the subject:
    Mr. Heath has avoided making any direct statement on the issue in advance of the debate. Yesterday he went sailing around the Singapore islands in a sloop belonging to Air Marshal Sir Rochford Hughes, a New Zealander who is an adviser to Singapore Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew.
