HC Deb 28 November 1956 vol 561 cc34-5W
45. Mr. Lewis

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the conflicting estimates that have and are being made of the number of casualties and destruction caused in Port Said by the British bombing and shelling of this port, he will arrange for an all-party delegation of Members of Parliament to visit Port Said to investigate and report to the House of Commons.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I have been asked to reply.

My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on 14th November explained the impracticability of the proposal. Since then the Paymaster-General has paid a visit to Port Said and I can say no more until Her Majesty's Government have studied his report.
