HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 c413W
99. Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if, in order to lessen tension in the Middle East, he will remove such obstacles as Her Majesty's Government have put in the way of the civilian population of Southern Arabia in tending their crops and their animals.

Mr. H. Fraser

No. Tension in the Middle East is not of our making. The main obstruction to a peaceful agriculture in the Radfan is rebellion fomented from outside the territory.
