HC Deb 13 June 1966 vol 729 c1029
40. Mr. Philip Noel-Baker

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many British subjects have been killed in Aden and how many have been wounded there, by terrorist attacks between 1st January and 31st May, 1966.

Mr. Padley

In South Arabia, including Aden and the Protectorate, eight killed and 111 wounded.

Mr. Noel-Baker

Can my hon. Friend say whether there have been signs of diminution in these acts of terrorism in recent weeks?

Mr. Padley

I am afraid not. One must hope that the initiative which is being taken by the Federal Government in convening a conference to implement the United Nations Resolutions and to ensure a political settlement will meet with the response which my right hon. Friend desires.
