HC Deb 16 November 1955 vol 546 cc35-6W
77. Mr. C. I. Orr-Ewing

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the increasing tension along the 166-mile frontier between Israel and Egypt, he will now advocate increasing the strength and mobility of the United Nations Armistice Commission so that they may adequately watch this frontier 24 hours a day.

Mr. Nutting

I have nothing to add to the replies given by my right hon. Friend on 7th November to Questions by the right hon. Gentlemen the Members for Rowley Regis and Tipton (Mr. A. Henderson) and Grimsby (Mr. Younger). It is for General Burns to decide what additional staff is required. He knows that any request from him will have Her Majesty's Government's support.
