§ 11. Mr. Healey
asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will instruct Her Majesty's Government's representatives at the United Nations to support discussion of the Algerian situation by the United Nations as a threat to peace.
§ Mr. Healey
Can the Lord Privy Seal tell the House what attitude Her Majesty's Government propose to take in this discussion? Is it not the case that in recent weeks the Algerian affair has taken on very serious international implications and that the rebel Government are now being recognised by a large number of members of the United Nations? Is it not highly desirable that the United Nations should at this time seize itself of the problem and use every influence it has in order to bring about negotiations between the French Government and leaders of the rebellion in Algeria? Would the Lord Privy Seal tell us whether Her Majesty's Government will do everything they can in this direction?
