HC Deb 22 March 1948 vol 448 c2567
37. Mr. Mott-Radclyffe

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the lack of information available to His Majesty's Government on the state of affairs in the Yemen, he will consider appointing a permanent representative in that country.

Mr. Mayhew

The Government of the Yemen have hitherto been unwilling to receive resident foreign representatives. Should they change their mind, my right hon. Friend will be happy to consider such an appointment.

Mr. Mott-Radclyffe

Is it a fact that at the moment the only channel of information to His Majesty's Government about the Yemen is through the Governor of Aden.

Mr. Mayhew
