§ 60. Mr. A. Boyle
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will make a statement on the discussions he had during his recent visit to the Far East on the position in Brunei.
§ The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Mr. George Thomson)
My right hon. Friend did not discuss the position in Brunei with any of the authorities whom he saw during his visits.
§ Mr. Thomson
Brunei is a separate State bound to the United Kingdom by bilateral treaty arrangement. It is not part of any of the countries my right hon. Friend visited and which were the subject of the hon. Gentleman's Question. Detailed questions about Brunei should be directed to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations.
