HC Deb 05 November 1956 vol 558 c200W
53. Mr. Warbey

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs on which occasions during the past three months he has advised the Israeli Government against making an armed attack on Egypt.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

Her Majesty's Government's representations to the Israeli Government have in the main been concerned with the possibility of Israeli attacks upon Jordan, but as my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister told the House on 30th October, when the news was received of Israel mobilisation, Her Majesty's Ambassador at Tel Aviv was instructed to make inquiries of the Israel Foreign Minister and to urge restraint.
