HC Deb 29 May 1963 vol 678 c1296
8. Mr. Wall

asked the Lord Privy Seal what representations he has received from Governments who attended the recent Conference of African States at Addis Ababa about areas of British responsibility in Africa.

Mr. Heath

Her Majesty's Government have not received representations of such a kind from the Conference. Any other communications on this subject which may be received from Commonwealth or foreign Governments are confidential.

Mr. Wall

While appreciating the degree of economic co-operation at this Conference, may I ask whether my right hon. Friend would care to comment on the remarks of the Prime Minister of Uganda who is alleged to have offered his country for the training of "freedom fighters" and to have said, "There is going to be war"? What action do the Government take when one Commonwealth country appears to threaten war against another?

Mr. Heath

I have seen reports of this kind. Naturally, we regret them.
