asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is aware of the decision of the United Nations General Assembly on 11th December, 1963, to appoint a committee of five to investigate the situation in Oman; and whether Her Majesty's Government will use its good offices to expedite this inquiry, with a view to bringing to an end the six years of military conflict in Oman and Muscat.

Mr. P. Thomas

I am aware of the General Assembly's resolution, against which we voted. It does not refer to any military conflict, for no such conflict is in progress. The Committee has not yet been set up, much less made any approach to Her Majesty's Government.
