67. Mr. E. L. Mallalieu

asked the Lord Privy Seal what arrangements are being made by the United Nations, in accordance with the resolution of the Security Council, adopted on 21st February, 1961, to eliminate the possibilty of interference by Congolese armed units and personnel in the political life of the Congo.

Mr. Heath

The Secretary-General has addressed a letter to the President of the Congo, a copy of which is in the Library of the House annexed to his report of 27th February to the Security Council. This letter deals, amongst other subjects, with the point raised in the hon. and learned Gentleman's Question.

The United Nations have also succeeded in arranging an embargo on troop movements in the Katanga Province, and the withdrawal of a party of troops from Stanleyville, who had arrived in Luluabourg.
