§ 28. Mr. A. Henderson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether British ships are now exercising the right of free and innocent passage through the Gulf of Aqaba as an international waterway.
§ Mr. Henderson
In exercising that right, do the Government intend to consult the Egyptian Government with a view to securing their agreement to the passage of British ships through the Gulf of Aqaba, by reason of our view that we regard it as an international waterway?
On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I simply wanted to clear up what the Foreign Secretary meant by his statement. It was not at all clear.
