HC Deb 10 December 1970 vol 808 cc663-4
Q6. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Prime Minister if he will pay an official visit to the Cosmeledos Islands in the Indian Ocean.

The Prime Minister

I have no plans to do so.

Mr. Dalyell

Is there any foundation in the suggestion of the normally well- informed Washington correspondent of The Times that we are thinking less in terms of island bases and more in terms of base at Mombasa?

The Prime Minister

That is quite unrelated to the Question.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

Since my right hon. Friend shows an understandable reluctance to go to the Cosmeledos Islands, would he care to come to Chelmsford instead?
