HC Deb 02 August 1965 vol 717 c199W
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.
