HC Deb 16 March 1964 vol 691 cc112-3W
46. Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what action he has taken following the incident at Port Said when the British freighter "Cardiganshire" was forced by Egyptian authorities to unload its entire cargo because a parcel addressed to the Israel Ambassador in Manila was included on the ship's manifest and subsequently seized.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Our Ambassador has protested to the United Arab Republic authorities at the delay in the passage of the "Cardiganshire" and has reserved Her Majesty's Government's rights in the matter.
