HC Deb 04 November 1959 vol 612 c51W
73. Mr. Wall

asked the Minister of Defence whether he will make a statement about British bases in Cyprus after power has been transferred to the new Republic.

Mr. Watkinson

Our requirements for bases and defence facilities in the island of Cyprus after the Republic has come into being are set out in a statement by Her Majesty's Government included in the White Paper reporting the conclusions of the Conference held in London last February (Cmnd. 679). The final treaties to give effect to these conclusions are still in preparation.
