HC Deb 26 July 1951 vol 491 c611

The VICE-CHAMBERLAIN OF THE HOUSE-HOLD (Mr. POPPLEWELL) reported His Majesty's Answer to the Address, as follows:

I thank you sincerely for your loyal and dutiful Address informing me of the deep sorrow and indignation with which you have learned of the assassination of H.M. King Abdullah of the Jordan.

I fully share the sentiments to which your Address gives expression and I will take care to convey to the Government of the Jordan the sense of abhorrence which, in common with myself, you feel for this detestable crime and your sympathy with the family of his late Majesty, with the Government and with the people of the Jordan.
