HC Deb 10 June 1959 vol 606 c93W
60. Mr. A. Henderson

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will make a statement on the progress achieved at the Geneva Conference of Foreign Ministers.

No agreement has yet been reached, but the discussions, both in private and in plenary session, are continuing and I am hopeful that some conclusions will be reached before much longer.
