HC Deb 11 June 1947 vol 438 cc1049-50
12. Sir R. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has considered the Report of the recent Inter-Parliamentary Conference held at Cairo, a copy of which has been sent to him; and if he has any statement to make on the recommendations agreed to by that conference.

Mr. Bevin

Yes, Sir. I am carefully considering the report which was passed by the Conference, and which includes useful resolutions on migration and transfers of population, reparations, codification of international law and the abolition of restrictions on travel.

Sir R. Glyn

Would the right hon. Gentleman care to say whether those recommendations are in line with the policy of His Majesty's Government?

Mr. Bevin

Yes, Sir, in the main, and subject to detailed examination; and I should like to express my gratitude for the work done by the Inter-Parliamentary Conference, for I think it is making contacts and recommendations of great use.
