HC Deb 01 December 1960 vol 631 cc91-2W
73. Mr. D. Foot

asked the Lord Privy Seal if Her Majesty's Government will instruct the United Kingdom representative on the Trusteeship Committee of the United Nations to support the petition that a resolution be put before the General Assembly supporting the move by Liberia and Ethiopia to bring before the International Court the question of the mandate for South West Africa.

Mr. Heath

I assume that the hon. and learned Gentleman is referring to a draft resolution tabled in the Trusteeship Committee on 23rd November by Ghana, Nigeria and the Sudan. This has already been once revised and as I do not know the final form in which it may come to a vote, if at all, I cannot say how the United Kingdom Delegation will vote. Meanwhile, the Trusteeship Committee adjourned its consideration of the question of South West Africa on 25th November.
