HC Deb 07 December 1949 vol 470 c151W
13. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware of the proposal of the Political Committee of the United Nations Assembly that Italy be permitted to resume the administration of ex-Italian Somaliland; and what instructions he proposes to issue to the United Kingdom representative on the attitude to be adopted to this policy.

Mr. Mayhew

Yes; and my hon. Friend will doubtless be aware that this proposal was endorsed by the General Assembly. The United Kingdom representative at Lake Success voted in favour of the resolution in accordance with his instructions.
