HC Deb 13 March 1963 vol 673 cc155-6W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Lord Privy Seal what requests Her Majesty's Government have received from the Government of the Imam of Yemen for assistance in feeding and relieving his civilian population, bombed out by Egyptian aircraft; and what consultations have been held with other Governments and international organisations on measures to alleviate distress in Yemen.

Mr. Heath

There have been two requests for such assistance, in response to which Her Majesty's Government have suggested that the Government of the Imam might wish to consider approaching the International Committee of the Red Cross. There have been no consultations with other Governments or international organisations about the requests.
