§ 44 and 51. Mrs. L. Jeger
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (1) what discussions have been held with the Greek Government regarding Her Majesty's Government's proposals for Cyprus;
(2) what conversations he has had with the Greek and Turkish Governments about Cyprus.
§ 61. Mr. Donnelly
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will make a statement regarding his discussions with the Turkish Government on the future status of Cyprus.
§ 62. Mr. K. Robinson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will make a statement on his recent discussions with Greek and Turkish Ministers about the Cyprus problem.
§ Commander Noble
In view of the fact that my right hon. and learned Friend is now in Athens for discussions on the Cyprus problem with the Greek Government, I hope the House will understand if I do not today in reply to Questions, or supplementary questions, add to the Answer given yesterday by my right hon. Friend the Colonial Secretary.
§ Mrs. Jeger
While I appreciate the Minister's difficulties, may I ask him to represent to his right hon. and learned Friend that any unnecessary delay in making a statement is only adding to speculation and rumour, which are doing a great deal of harm? If it is not possible for him to make an early statement, will the Foreign Secretary at least consider making an interim statement to counteract some of the rumours that are spreading?
