§ 14. Mr. Emrys Hughes
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty to what extent British warships co-operate with United States warships in Eastern Mediterranean waters.
§ Mr. Hughes
Can the Parliamentary Secretary say whether the two fleets cooperated quite a lot during the recent trouble in Suez and whether at any time the British Fleet was threatened by the American Sixth Fleet, as stated by the latest Ministerial arrival at the War Office?
§ Mr. Soames
During the Suez operations, of course, the two fleets had two different rôles. Within the limits prescribed by those circumstances relations were courteous and cordial.
§ Mr. Shinwell
Was the consent of Mr. Dulles obtained in order to ensure cooperation between the American Fleet and the British Fleet in the Mediterranean?
