§ 46. Mr. Philip Noel-Baker
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what steps Her Majesty's Government will now take to secure the settlement of the dispute between Malaysia and Indonesia by the intervention of the United Nations.
§ Mr. George Thomson
As my right hon. Friend told the hon. Gentleman the Member for Barry (Mr. Gower) and my right hon. Friend the Member for Derby, South (Mr. Philip Noel-Baker) on 1st March, it is primarily for the Malaysian Government to decide when and in what way this question should again be brought before the United Nations. The Malaysian Government have kept the United Nations Security Council continuously informed of Indonesian acts of aggression. We do not ourselves contemplate any initiative at this stage.
