HC Deb 14 February 1945 vol 408 c194
3. Mr. Price

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can give the House information about any decisions that were reached at a recent meeting between Their Majesties the King of Egypt and the King of Saudi Arabia, relating to future co-operation between the Arab States of the Middle East; and if any alteration of our existing treaties with these states is involved.

Mr. Law

I regret that I cannot make any statement regarding the matters discussed at the meeting, but I think that my hon. Friend may be assured that the discussions between the heads of these States, each of which is in particularly close relations with His Majesty's Government, are likely to have been inspired by the most friendly feelings towards this country.

Major-General Sir Edward Spears

Would my right hon. Friend take this opportunity of sending a message of good will, sympathy and support to the Foreign Ministers of the Arab States who are meeting in Cairo this week?

Mr. Law

I will consider that.
