HC Deb 02 June 1964 vol 695 cc146-7W
Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and the Colonies, in view of the deteriorating political situation in Aden and in the South Arabian Federation, what steps he is now taking to eliminate the internal stresses and strains which have developed among the staff of Her Majesty's High Commissioner, Sir K. Trevaskis, details of which have been submitted to him twice by the hon. Member for Arundel and Shoreham, and which are prejudicing the efficiency of the High Commission.
