17. Captain BENN
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the evacuation of Cologne is being postponed on account of the negotiations concerning the Five Power Pact?
Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that the continued delay in publishing the reasons for the 2195 non-evacuation of Cologne lends considerable colour to the suggestion that the two questions are interlocked?
I am not aware. I think that, on the whole, matters are proceeding satisfactorily. With patience and good will on all sides, we may yet arrive at a solution of all our troubles.
