§ 89. Mr. Grimond
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations what consultations have taken place with Commonwealth countries over the situation in the Lebanon, with a view to formulating a joint policy at the United Nations.
§ Mr. Alport
In accordance with normal procedure we have been in close and constant touch with other Commonwealth Governments throughout the Lebanese crisis. We have exchanged views and information with other Governments about developments as they have occurred. Hon. Members will not expect me to give details of the nature of these Commonwealth consultations which are, by long established practice, confidential.
