§ 2. Mr. E. Fletcher
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will make a statement about the policy of Her Majesty's Government in the Middle East following his recent consultations.
§ The Minister of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Anthony Nutting)
I should prefer not to anticipate any statement which may be made on my right hon. Friend's return from Washington.
§ Mr. Fletcher
While I wish the Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary all success in their important mission, may I ask whether the Government will bear in mind that it would be a major contribution to the possibility of peace between the Jews and the Arabs if 575 economic aid on a really generous scale were made available to facilitate the resettlement of the refugees?
