HC Deb 06 March 1972 vol 832 c1014
13. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will seek to arrange a parliamentary delegation to visit the countries of CENTO and also Afghanistan.

Mr. Anthony Royle

I should be happy to see such a visit take place at a time convenient to all concerned.

Mr. Dodds-Parker

Will my hon. Friend take advantage of the visit of the Secretary-General of CENTO this week to suggest to him that a visit might be arranged, possibly with some parliamentary parties already in the Middle East, in view of the importance of these countries to us all?

Mr. Royle

We shall consider raising the matter with the Secretary-General.
