HC Deb 19 October 1954 vol 531 cc1026-7
47. Mr. Steward

asked the Prime Minister whether he will now make a statement about the future of the British Commonwealth Division in Korea.

The Prime Minister

Her Majesty's Government have already announced that, in agreement with the other Commonwealth countries concerned and the United States of America, the Commonwealth land forces in Korea will be reduced by two-thirds. This reduction has already begun and should be completed early in 1955. The Commonwealth identity of the Commonwealth forces remaining in Korea will be retained.
