HC Deb 28 February 1955 vol 537 c215W
59. Mr. Awbery

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, in view of the importance of the report of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe on the effects of world oil cartels on European economics and on the price of oil, if he will instruct his representative at the United Nations to request the Secretary General to publish it.

Mr. Turton

The decision whether or not to publish this document rests with the Governments which participate in the work of the Economic Commission for Europe, who will be considering it at the meeting of the Commission's Coal Committee on the 9th and 10th March. It is not the practice of Her Majesty's Government to divulge their instructions to delegations to international conferences.
