asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is now in a position to make a statement on the British-American Oil Agreement; and if he will indicate the substance of the undertaking given by His Majesty's Government to the Government of the United States on future co-operation with respect to oil between the two countries.

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the negotiations with the United States as to the future exploitation of oil resources have been concluded; and whether he can make a statement.
§ The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Eden)
I would call the attention of my hon. Friends to the White Paper which is being laid to-day and which contains the text of the Anglo-American Petroleum Agreement and a statement agreed between the two delegations.
§ Sir P. Hannon
Is my right hon. Friend quite satisfied that these arrangements will be entirely fair to this country as well as the United States?
