HC Deb 24 January 1956 vol 548 c29
45. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Prime Minister what progress has been made by the Committee of Privy Councillors appointed to investigate the question of security following the disappearance of Mr. Burgess and Mr. Maclean.

The Prime Minister (Sir Anthony Eden)

I understand that the Conference has nearly finished its work and hopes to report to me very shortly.

Mr. Hughes

Is the Prime Minister aware that we all wish him a happy New Year and continued health and strength to struggle with the Tory Press and with General Eisenhower; but can he assure us that Messrs. Maclean and Burgess have not returned with Doctor Otto John and are not advising the Middle East section of the Foreign Office?

The Prime Minister

May I thank the hon. Member for his good wishes, and say that his remarks are of an assorted medley which will entertain me a great deal on the Queen Elizabeth?
