HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 cc415-6W
Q10. Mr. Brockway

asked the Prime Minister what action is being taken to prevent further gun-running into the Yemen by British nationals.

The Prime Minister

As I have already told the House it is our policy not to intervene in the affairs of the Yemen. But as my right hon. Friend the Commonwealth Secretary has told the House there is a certain amount of traffic in small arms in this part of the world, which the nature of the country and the ill-defined border between the Yemen and the Federation of South Arabia make it quite impossible to control.
