HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 c161W
Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will urge on the Security Council the need for sending to the Congo Republic a Russian service mission on the same terms as the United States one.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

There is no United, States Service mission in the Congo. The few United States service personnel there are concerned with the American transport aircraft being used by the United Nations. The Security Council have already given the Secretary-General the mandate he needs to carry out the United Nations' task, and I do not propose to put any further suggestions to them now.
