Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Prime Minister whether in the recent talks in the Near East, any decisions were taken on the future of the Middle Eastern supply centre; and what is the policy of His Majesty's Government in regard to the Middle Eastern supply centre in connection with the economic development of the Near and Middle East.

Mr. Attlee

The answer to the first part of the Question is in the negative. As regards the second, the future of the Middle East Supply Centre is at present under consideration, and I am not at this stage in a position to make any statement in respect of it.
