§ 68. Mr. G. M. Thomson
asked the Minister of Defence how far agreement was reached at the meeting of the Commonwealth Prime Ministers regarding the stationing of Australian and New Zealand Forces in Malaya.
§ The Minister of Defence (Mr. Harold Macmillan)
I am unable at present to add anything to the communiqué on regional defence discussions which was issued yesterday at the end of the Commonwealth Prime Ministers' Conference.
§ Mr. Thomson
Can the Minister give an assurance that in any arrangements reached, the full consent of the people of Malaya themselves will be obtained?
