HC Deb 15 January 1964 vol 687 c41W
Mr. Brockway

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what communication was sent to President Macapagal of the Philippines prior to his discussions with President Sukarno of Indonesia; and what reply has been received.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Her Majesty's Ambassador at Manila was asked to emphasise to President Macapagal of the Philippines our hope that he would take advantage of his meeting with President Sukarno of Indonesia to exercise a moderating influence on Indonesian policies. This led to a confidential discussion between President Macapagal and Her Majesty's Ambassador, but no substantive reply has been received from the Philippine President.
