HC Deb 10 July 1957 vol 573 cc52-3W
Major Beamish

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has any further statement to make on Yemeni incursions into the Aden Protectorate; and what steps are under consideration for the demarcation of the frontier between the two territories.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

On the first part of the Question, I have nothing to add to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs on 3rd July. On the second part, no further steps have been taken for the demarcation of the frontier since the agreement reached at the London Anglo-Yemeni conference in 1951 to appoint a boundary commission to deal with places where the actual position of the frontier was in doubt. This agreement has not been implemented by the Yemen Government.
