HC Deb 18 June 1951 vol 489 c3W
55. Mr. Gammans

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will ascertain from the United Nations Organisation what response has been made to the resolution of the United Nations Additional Measures Committee calling upon its members to place an embargo on the export of strategic materials to China.

Mr. Younger:

In accordance with the General Assembly resolution of 18th May, reports were to be made to the Additional Measures Committee within 30 days, that is to say by 17th June. It is not at present known what procedure will be adopted by the Additional Measures Committee for dealing with these reports. In our own case, however, my right hon. and learned Friend the President of the Board of Trade will be making a statement in the House tomorrow.
