HC Deb 02 December 1958 vol 596 cc121-2W
Mr. Bevan

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will make a statement on the steps taken by the Secretary-General of the United Nations since the Emergency Meeting of the General Assembly on 21st August adopted the Resolution regarding an Arab development institution designed to further economic growth in the Near East.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

I have nothing to add to the information contained in the last paragraph of the answer which my right honourable Friend gave to the hon. Member for Eton and Slough (Mr. Brockway) on 23rd October. Her Majesty's Government are unaware of any further response as yet by the Arab Governments concerned to the Secretary-General's offer of United Nations assistance with the project.
