HC Deb 10 February 1959 vol 599 c184W
Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will give directions that no further operational exercises be held in Cyprus until he has had an opportunity of making a further effort to reach a solution of the island's affairs.

Mr. J. Amery

No. The security forces must continue to take whatever steps may be necessary to prevent EOKA forces from regrouping and from transporting arms and explosives.
