§ 32. Mr. Henry Clark
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs if he will hold discussions with other Commonwealth Governments with a view to the posting of forces in the South Arabian Federation to assist federal forces with defence and the maintenance of law and order after the withdrawal of British forces.
§ Mr. George Thomas
No, Sir. As the provision of a peace-keeping force in the South Arabian Federation is a measure which the forthcoming United Nations Mission might wish to recommend it would be premature to take such steps as the hon. Gentleman has suggested.
