§ Mr. Goodhew
asked the Lord Privy Seal what discussions have taken place between Her Majesty's Government and the United States administration during recent weeks concerning the admission of the People's Republic of China to membership of the United Nations; and what progress he has to report.
§ Mr. Heath
We are in constant communication with the United States Administration through the United States Embassy here in London, through our Embassy in Washington and through our Mission at the United Nations. It is not possible to give a detailed account of our negotiations; but it is our objective, and I believe that of our friends, to devise an honourable solution, as fair as possible to all the parties concerned.
