HC Deb 08 April 1957 vol 568 c792
25. Mr. P. Williams

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will make available the text of the speech of the United Kingdom representative at the United Nations indicting Archbishop Makarios.

Mr. Ian Harvey

I am not aware that the United Kingdom representative at the United Nations made any speech specifically indicting Archbishop Makarios. As Archbishop Makarios is a British subject it would not be appropriate to indict him in a legal sense in the United Nations. The speech made by my right hon. and gallant Friend the Minister of State on 18th February this year at the General Assembly of the United Nations is contained in United Nations document No. A/C.1/PV.847 of that date, a copy of which is in the Library.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

Would the Joint Under-Secretary of State suggest to the Foreign Office that it might be useful to us to have a White Paper with the whole of the Assembly debate on Cyprus available for the use of hon. Members?

Mr. Harvey

I will certainly consider that.
