§ 42. Sir T. Beamish
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is his latest estimate of the strength of the United Arab Republic armed forces in the Yemen; and if he will urge the withdrawal of United Arab Republic forces from the Yemen, as well as the ending of Cairo-inspired subversive and terrorist activities in the Aden area, as essential pre-conditions of the better relations he is seeking with the United Arab Republic.
§ Mr. George Thomson
I understand that United Arab Republic troops in the Yemen number more than 50,000.
As regards the second part of the Question, I would refer to what my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister said in the House on 19th July.
