HC Deb 01 May 1950 vol 474 c1408
51. Dr. Stross

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what steps he is taking to encourage a peaceful settlement in the Middle East, based on the existing areas controlled by Jordan and Israel

Mr. Ernest Davies

I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement made by my hon. Friend the Minister of State on 27th April.

Dr. Stross

In view of that statement, may I ask whether my hon. Friend himself is aware that there is both stability and strength in these two countries, and whether he will do everything he can to see that there is a decent settlement?

Mr. Davies

We consider that the steps we are taking can contribute to that end, and we are doing everything to assist in the restoration of friendly relations.
