§ Q8. Mr. David Steel
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the fact that recent major crises in the Commonwealth have involved British foreign policy as a whole, he will reconsider his earlier decision about the merger of the Foreign Office and the Commonwealth Relations Office into one Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
§ Sir G. de Freitas
Since the two external services are now to be combined into one service, is it not even more important that there should be one Minister here to deal with the relations of the 21 different countries, many very young and all looking to us for guidance?
