HC Deb 14 December 1955 vol 547 cc1204-5
50. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what reports he has received about the state of public security in the Aden Protectorate at the present time.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I am glad to say the reports I have received from the Governor show that, although there have been a certain number of incidents, the security position in those parts of the Western Aden Protectorate which have been troubled by dissidents has of late considerably improved. In the remainder of the Western and all the Eastern Protectorate the position remains satisfactory.

Mr. Biggs-Davison

While thanking my' right hon. Friend for that satisfactory reply, may I ask whether he can say that the Yemen is now playing the part of a good neighbour?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I am sure we are all very anxious that that should be so.
