§ Mr. Selwyn Lloyd
The Resolution took note of the offer of good offices by Morocco and Tunisia, and then expressed the wish that "pourparlers" should be entered into, and other appropriate means utilised, with a view to a solution of the Algerian problem, in conformity with the 1191 purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations. It does not lie within the power of Her Majesty's Government to implement the terms of this Resolution.
§ Mr. Benn
In view of the fact that in the most recent crisis between Tunisia and France Her Majesty's Government offered her good offices, would it not be proper and, indeed, appropriate for Her Majesty's Government to do the same with a view to bringing about a cease-fire in Algeria, since the Algerian war is in danger of involving the whole of Western Europe and, on the other side, the Asian and Arab world?
