HC Deb 25 February 1964 vol 690 c54W
Q10. Mr. Warbey

asked the Prime Minister whether President Johnson, in agreeing to support the peaceful national independence of Malaysia, agreed also to give full United States support to the territorial integrity of the present Malaysian Federation.

The Prime Minister

Peaceful national independence and territorial integrity seem to me to be the same thing. I did not need any specific assurance that President Johnson's reaffirmation of United States support for the first also covered the second. I am quite confident that the United States Government have the same interest in the territorial integrity of Malaysia as they do in that of any other full member of the United Nations.

Mr. Shinwell

asked the Prime Minister what agreement has been reached between himself and President Johnson as regards British representation at a summit conference.

The Prime Minister

There are no plans that I know of for a summit conference. The President and I did not discuss hypothetical questions.
