§ 13. Mr. A. Henderson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what reply he has made to the recent official protest made by President Sukarno that he has in his possession documents of Her Majesty's Government establishing that Her Majesty's Government sought to subvert the Government of Indonesia; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
There has been no official protest, but a broadcast speech by President Sukarno on 15th February contains the allegation that the President possessed documentary evidence of a British plan to encircle and undermine 13 Indonesia. No such plan has ever existed and the Indonesians could consequently not have obtained any such documents from their attack on the Embassy on 18th September, 1963.
§ Mr. Henderson
Has any demand been made to President Sukarno to hand over these purloined documents or, alternatively, to hand over facsimile copies of them so that the true facts may be established?
