HC Deb 24 February 1959 vol 600 c129W
63. Mr. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies to what extent the policy of Her Majesty's Government with regard to Cyprus has changed during the past 12 months; and what has been the reason for this change of policy.

Mr. J. Amery

The main purposes of Her Majesty's Government's policy in Cyprus were defined in the first paragraph of their Statement of Policy of 19th June, 1958. The Agreement reached with the Greek and Turkish Governments and the representatives of the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities on 19th February, 1959, is wholly consistent wth these purposes.
