HC Deb 14 July 1954 vol 530 c29W
55. Mr. Hollis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what damage has been suffered by Christian Churches or other holy places in the recent fighting in Jerusalem.

Mr. Nutting

According to the United Nations Truce Supervision Organisation, six Christian churches and other holy places suffered slight damage during the recent fighting in Jerusalem. All these holy places are in Jordan Jerusalem, and the damage is reported to have been the result of mortar fire.

I am glad to say that in spite of this, estimates of damage so far reported are all slight except in one case, that of the Armenian Convent.
