HC Deb 05 February 1957 vol 564 c45W
94. Mr. Warbey

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will arrange for a Parliamentary delegation to visit the British-protected States in the Persian Gulf.

Mr. Ian Harvey

Her Majesty's Government are not responsible for the internal affairs of the independent States in the Persian Gulf under British protection. It does not therefore lie with Her Majesty's Government to make the arrangements proposed.
