§ 76. Mr. Rankin
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and the Colonies if he will make a statement on the present situation in Radfan.
§ Mr. Sandys
The capture of the Jebel Huriyah range by British and Federal Forces completes the present phase of the military operations.
As at all times, the Federal Government will be very willing to give consideration to any sincere approaches by the leaders of the dissident tribes and to help to alleviate, as they are already doing, the hardships which have inevitably been caused to the civilian population as a result of the disorders.
