§ The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. William Rodgers)
A claim has been presented to Kuwait and claims will be presented to the Lebanon, Libya, the U.A.R., Iraq and Syria as soon as possible.
§ Mr. Rodgers
We must all regret the delay. It is partly due to the fact that there has been an absence of diplomatic relations between Britain and several of these countries, and also real difficulties in assessing the damage which was incurred.
§ Mr. Fortescue
Will the Under-Secretary of State tell the House whether any claim was made or compensation offered in respect of the aeroplane of our military attache in Jordan which was destroyed on the ground at Amman airfield by the Israeli Air Force?
