HC Deb 22 February 1956 vol 549 c39W
77. Mr. Wade

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies to state the precise proposals made by Her Majesty's Government for the future self-government of Cyprus; and what steps Her Majesty's Government are prepared to take to bring such self-government into being.

Mr. Hare

I cannot, at the present stage, go beyond saying that Her Majesty's Government's proposals in this regard were outlined during the Tripartite Conference last September, and have been further explained by the Governor in his recent exchanges with Archbishop Makarios and Turkish Cypriot representatives. These exchanges are still continuing and I am sure the hon. Member will agree that no further comment is desirable.
