HC Deb 26 November 1958 vol 596 cc362-3
36. Mr. Donnelly

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what representations he made regarding the free passage of British ships through the Suez Canal when he held his discussions with the Foreign Minister of the United Arab Republic.

Mr. Ormsby-Gore

None, Sir.

Mr. Donnelly

If none, why none, because surely, that is what the Suez expedition was about?

Mr. Ormsby-Gore

The only reason for making some representation would be if we had been asked by some shipping company to take up the matter, and that has not occurred.
