HC Deb 27 February 1958 vol 583 cc63-4W
Mr. Benn

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps are being considered by Her Majesty's Government to implement the decision of the United Nations Resolution of 11th December, 1957, concerning international respect for the right of peoples and nations to self-determination with regard to Cyprus, Kenya, Tanganyika and Nyasaland for further consideration at the 13th Session of the United Nations.

Mr. Profumo

The recommendations in this United Nations Resolution about self-determination only re-affirm what has been said in previous General Assembly resolutions. The House is well aware that Her Majesty's Government are doing everything in their power to promote self-government in the various territories for which they are responsible, in accordance with the circumstances of each case.
