HC Deb 18 July 1955 vol 544 cc22-3
42. Mr. Keegan

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Her Majesty's Government will support the proposal for a Charter Review Conference which will automatically be on the agenda for the next General Assembly of the United Nations.

The Joint Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. R. H. Turton)

I have nothing to add to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary to the hon. Member for Yardley (Mr. Usborne) on 13th July.

Mr. Keegan

I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply. Does that mean that if there is a Review Conference—which is still a possibility—Her Majesty's Government wll not send any representatives to it, or put forward any proposals at it?

Mr. Turton

No, certainly not. If a Review Conference were agreed upon, Her Majesty's Government would certainly wish to be represented.
