asked the Prime Minister what representations he has received from Mr. Nehru on the war in Korea.

The Prime Minister

His Majesty's Government are in constant consultation with all Commonwealth Governments on questions concerned with the Korean situation, but it would be contrary to the existing practice to reveal the nature of confidential communications which puss with Commonwealth Governments.

Mr. Hughes

In view of the intense interest with which these Notes have been followed right throughout the world, can the Prime Minister not say something to assure us that he is doing his best to support Mr. Nehru in his efforts?

The Prime Minister

His Majesty's Government are doing their best to support the United Nations.

Mr. Eden

In view of the publication of this correspondence, will the Prime Minister make it absolutely clear that I understand him aright, that two resolutions were passed by the Security Council, on 25th and 27th June and that His Majesty's Government intend to stand by those resolutions and have no intention of altering their position in that respect at all?

The Prime Minister

The right hon. Gentleman is absolutely right.
